David Moyes is said to be very keen on taking over as Aston Villa manager despite their impending drop into the Championship.
Current boss Remi Garde is said to be on the verge of getting the sack having failed to turn the club’s season around, the Villans occupying last place in the league standings, 12 points from safety with seven games left to play.
With relegation all but confirmed, the club’s hierarchy are looking towards next season and are keen to bring in former Leicester boss Nigel Pearson in the hope he can get them out of the Championship at the first time of asking.
However, Moyes is said to have thrown his hat into the ring as he looks to get back into club management, reportedly making it clear to Villa that he is prepared to drop down a division.
The Scot was a candidate for the Villa job last summer but is said to have turned down the role in favour of sticking with Real Sociedad, only to be sacked by the Spaniards in November.
The 52-year-old is now ready for a new challenge and would reportedly relish the rebuilding job needed at Villa Park after a disastrous campaign.
