David Moyes is willing to take over as manager at Aston Villa, even upon the club’s inevitable relegation to the Championship.
That is according to Darren Lewis of the Daily Mirror, who reports that the former Manchester United and Everton manager is looking to return to the game after a six-month hiatus.
Moyes was sacked as boss of La Liga club Real Sociedad in November, and has been linked with a return to the Premier League since, while Scottish side Celtic have also been mentioned as a possible destination.
Moyes was heavily linked with the Villa job in October upon the sacking of Tim Sherwood, but the Scot rejected the Midlands club to stay in Spain, and Villa appointed Remi Garde instead.
It is now widely believed that Garde will be sacked before the end of the season at Villa Park, with the club 12 points from safety with seven games remaining.
According to Lewis, Villa’s impending relegation has not deterred Moyes, and the 52-year-old is willing to replace Garde even if the club are relegated to the Championship.
Lewis adds that Villa are the only club Moyes will consider managing in the second tier.
