Tottenham tempted by departed Man United manager

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is already considering offering David Moyes a route back into Premier League management just days after the Scot was sacked by Manchester United, according to reports from the London Evening Standard.

The former Everton chief was relieved of his duties at Old Trafford just 10 months after succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson on the back of failing to get the defending champions into next season’s Champions League.

Despite his problems at United, Levy is thought to be considering Moyes as he looks to find a replacement for Tim Sherwood – who himself was only appointed as head coach over the winter period.

The recently sacked boss was considered by the London club when they appointed Andre Villas-Boas to replace Harry Redknapp in 2012, and some senior figures at White Hart Lane are thought to be fans of his.

Another positive in regard to Moyes is the fact that his appointment would not require any compensation to be paid for his services following United’s decision to axe him.

Dutch coach Louis van Gaal was believed to be the front-runner, yet he is now rumoured to be eyeing the job at Old Trafford.
