THE only British football manager in La Liga, David Moyes, has been linked with a move back to England after just two months in charge of Real Sociedad.

The Scot, 51, is among the favourites to take over at Newcastle United, following the departure of Alan Pardew.

The former Manchester United boss has won twice in the league so far with Real Sociedad, who are based in Santander, including a memorable victory at home to Barcelona.

He is now at 50/1 with Paddy Power to become the boss of Newcastle this January. But in the summer he was the bookmakers’ favourite to replace controversial boss Pardew.

Moyes, who managed Everton for 11 years, made the switch to Spain in November, with plans to use a translator and undertake intensive Spanish lessons.

Real Sociedad currently lie 13th in the table.
