The Scotsman, who is without a managerial role at the moment, has stated that he held talks with Villa, Celtic and Everton among other clubs before he was handed the role at Sunderland.
On reports that before he was appointed the Sunderland manager, he had the chance to go to West Ham, Villa and Swansea, Moyes said on Sportsound on BBC Radio Scotland (6:50pm, November 4, 2019): ”Yes [it’s true]. And more.
“Before I took the Sunderland job on I had also met Celtic and I had also met Everton, around that time as well.”
Back into management
Moyes has been without a managerial role since the summer of 2018 when he parted company with West Ham.
The former Everton and Manchester United boss is a very good manager who knows the Premier League inside out, and it is only a time before he find a new club.
As for Sunderland, the Black Cats are in League One at the moment and are struggling for automatic promotion to the Championship.
