Report explains David Moyes' managerial plans amid recent speculation

David Moyes Interview - 23/02/2014

David Moyes has been linked with Celtic, Leeds United and Swansea City recently.

According to BBC Sport, David Moyes isn't interested in the Swansea City job - and is willing to wait before returning to management.

The Scot had been one of the most highly-rated managers in English football having impressed in charge of Preston North End and Everton, but his career has been tarnished by his spell at Manchester United.

Moyes was hand-picked as the man to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford, but he lasted less than a year in the job before being sacked.

The ex-Celtic defender then looked to rebuild his career by moving to Spain with Real Sociedad, but again he lost his job after just less than a year in charge of the San Sebastian outfit.

Many now believe that Moyes will return to Britain and continue his managerial career, but it may not be for a while yet, if reports are to be believed.

BBC Sport suggest that Moyes is not interested in the Swansea City job, despite murmurings that he could be the man to replace Garry Monk at the Liberty Stadium.

It's also been reported by The Mirror that Moyes is a target for Leeds United if Steve Parkin was to buy the club, whilst the Daily Record noted that Moyes was the favourite for the Celtic job, should the Bhoys decide to sack under-pressure manager Ronny Deila.

However, the report from BBC Sport states that Moyes is waiting for the right opportunity before returning to management, meaning it could be some time before we see him back in the dugout - despite suggestions that he could make a very quick comeback to British football.
