David Moyes expected to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United

Moyes and Ferguson have had a close relationship and the Everton manager has long been considered as his fellow Scot's most likely successor. He was even considered as a possible right-hand man to Ferguson as far back as 2000, when he was in charge at Preston, two years before he took the Everton job.

London: Everton manager David Moyes is expected to be named as Alex Ferguson's successor at Manchester United on Thursday, as the widely-respected Scot moves into English football's most demanding and historic job.

The 50-year-old Moyes, who has spent 11 years at Goodison Park building solid squads on the slimmest of resources, is out of contract with the Merseysiders on June 30.

With only two games left to play this season, and with Everton heading for a commendable top-six finish, Moyes was holding talks with club chairman Bill Kenwright in London late Wednesday.
