Real Sociedad tell West Ham and Sunderland that David Moyes is going nowhere

David Moyes Interview - 23/02/2014

The former Everton and Manchester United boss is not heading back to England.

Real Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay has made it clear to any interested parties that former Manchester United and Everton manager David Moyes will not be leaving San Sebastian this summer, regardless of location.

He is quoted by Sky Sports as stating:

"Moyes has never spoken to us about this.

"If anything, we have heard these rumours from the media. He has never suggested the possibility to go back to England.

"We made an important structural decision by bringing in David Moyes last year. He has been planning for next season since the month of January."

Those comments certainly echo the words of Moyes in recent times who has admitted he will one day return to English football, but for now he has a project he plans on finishing at Real Sociedad.

Moyes has recently been linked with the vacant managerial positions at both West Ham and Sunderland.

Sunderland are without a boss after Dick Advocaat decided to leave, despite leading the club to survival after taking over from Gus Poyet.

West Ham parted company with their boss Sam Allardyce at the end of the season. He lost the fans at Upton Park and West Ham's second half of the season was poor, so the club is now looking in a new direction.

However, despite both no doubt being attractive projects for Moyes, it is clearer now more than ever that he will be staying in the Basque country for now.
