Report discloses David Moyes' feelings on becoming Aston Villa boss, no approach yet

David Moyes

David Moyes is reportedly keen to become Aston Villa boss this summer.

According to BBC Sport, manager David Moyes is keen on becoming Aston Villa boss this summer - but no approach has been made just yet.

Villa's relegation to the Championship was confirmed on Saturday evening following a 1-0 defeat away at Manchester United, with a full-scale rebuild required this summer.

A new manager will certainly be heading to Villa Park, with former boss Remi Garde leaving the club last summer, and interim boss Eric Black will only be in charge until the end of this dismal, miserable season for Villa.

A number of names have been suggested to replace Garde; the likes of Nigel Pearson, Steve Bruce and Simon Grayson have all been touted by fans, whilst David Moyes is also a popular name.

Now, BBC Sport report that Moyes is in fact interested in taking the job at Villa Park, but has yet to be approached by the club about replacing Garde.

Moyes, 52, impressed in an 11-year spell as Everton boss, but has career has been in freefall since leaving Goodison Park for Manchester United back in 2013.

Having failed at Old Trafford and then in Spain with Real Sociedad, the former Preston boss is now believed to keen on a return to English football, and would want the Villa job even though they'll be in the Championship next term.

It remains to be seen whether Villa do approach Moyes, but given the Scot's interest in the role, they would be foolish not to at least discuss a deal with him in the coming days.
