Report: Moyes will discuss Leeds job offer from Parkin, on one condition

David Moyes is said to be mulling over a potential opportunity at Leeds United.

The Mirror continues to link former Manchester United boss David Moyes with becoming the next Leeds United head coach.

Current Leeds boss Steve Evans has won over supporters and has won two games on the bounce, but a potential change of ownership could throw everything into question.

Businessman Steve Parkin is linked by The Mirror with a takeover of the club, buying out Massimo Cellino's stake, or even going into partnership with him. The paper claims he is set on appointing David Moyes as the club's next boss.

Moyes has just been sacked from his second job in as many years, dismissed from Old Trafford in 2014, he later decided to move to La Liga side Real Sociedad, only to be fired earlier this month.

Going on to take on the Leeds role is the very definition of a risky job, especially if trigger-happy Massimo Cellino remains involved in some shape.

Should he receive an offer, The Mirror claim there is one condition to Moyes accepting - and that is being backed heavily in the transfer market.

Moyes would be going to Leeds to help them clinch promotion, but wants to have sufficient funds to be able to do so.

Moyes has had two failures on his CV in recent seasons, and will not want to risk making it a quickfire third without guarantees.

Getting Leeds back to the top flight would restore his reputation, and be an achievement to be proud of, and once back in the Premier League the club's potential is astronomical.

Money is essential due to the competition for promotion from the Championship. The league is a very uneven one, with recently relegated sides receiving large parachute payments from the Premier League, and various foreign investors at clubs seeking to achieve the same goal.
