Former Manchester United manager David Moyes is set to make a return to football with La Liga strugglers Real Sociedad, various Spanish media sources reported on Sunday.

Moyes was sacked in April after less than a season in charge of United as they failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since 1995.

The Basques have been looking for a new coach since Jagoba Arrasate was sacked last weekend after just one win in their opening 10 league games.

Reports suggest that an official announcement will not be made until after Sociedad’s clash at home to La Liga champions Atletico Madrid on Sunday evening with coaches Asier Santana and Imanol Alguacil taking temporary charge of the side.

Sociedad have a history of appointing British managers as John Toshack enjoyed three spells as manager in San Sebastian, whilst current Wales manager Chris Coleman had an ill-fated six months in charge in the 2007/08 season.
