Former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes is interested in the Stoke City job.
Moyes has been out of work since leaving West Ham at the end of last season having guided the Hammers to Premier League safety, but could be ready for a return to the dug-out in the Potteries, according to The Daily Mirror, where current incumbent Gary Rowett is under intense pressure to keep his job.
Relegated from the Premier League last season, Stoke started as pre-season favourites to bounce straight back, but results and performances have been mixed, and with the club currently 14th in the Championship and 8 points off the play-off places, promotion ambitions are currently looking far-fetched.
Banners calling for Rowett to go have been shown by Stoke fans at recent matches, and were again in evidence at Shrewsbury on Saturday, when only a late equaliser from veteran Peter Crouch saved them from the embarrassment of an early exit from the FA Cup at the hands of their League One opponents.
