Struggling Newcastle United will turn to David Moyes should owner Mike Ashley decide to sack Steve McClaren, according to the Newcastle Chronicle Live.
The Magpies are in utter disarray after winning just twice this season following McClaren’s instillation at the helm earlier this summer.
Despite spending around £50m on players in the summer, the club are second bottom in the league and there are growing rumours of a dressing fallout.
Former England boss McClaren has never been the most universally popular choice amongst the fans and reports suggest Ashely could soon wield the axe if results continue.
Moyes is out of work after being shown the door at Real Sociedad, though the Scot is thought to be keen to prove himself again after the failed Manchester United experiment.
He infamously replaced Sir Alex Ferguson in the Old Trafford hotseat but could only muster less than a year in charge at the Manchester giants.
Newcastle are understood to have considered the former Everton chief before due to the nature of his good work on Merseyside, as speculation about McClaren’s future mounts.
