David Moyes sacked: Could the sacked Manchester United manager end up at Tottenham?
The Scot looks set to be a free agent this summer
David Moyes has been dismissed as manager of Manchester United - but could he make a swift return to management?
While still the manager of Everton, Moyes was strongly linked with a switch to Tottenham.
Spurs are expected to make a change this summer with chairman Daniel Levy understood to be unhappy with the appointment of Tim Sherwood. While the current Tottenham manager was given a contract until the end of next season, few expect him to be in charge beyond the end of the current campaign.
Louis van Gaal, the current Netherlands manager who has expressed a desire to manage in the Premier League when he steps down from his current position after the World Cup, is the name most strongly linked with White Hart Lane.

That raises the possibility that Levy could turn his attention back to Moyes and try to convince the outgoing Manchester United manager to make a quick return to the Premier League with Tottenham.
Despite such a poor spell in charge at Old Trafford, Moyes' stock will remain strong. 11 years of relative success at Everton haven't been wiped out by one poor season. There are likely to be various offers when he leaves Old Trafford.
