Many felt as though Moyes never received a fair chance at Old Trafford during his 10 month period at the club. He was sacked in less than a year into his six-year contract and Villa fans are excited at the prospect of picking up a prolific Premier League manager.

As pressure mounts on Moyes job at Sociedad, a move to the Premier League could offer the manager a lifeline out of his current predicament.

Villa is undoubtedly struggling in the Premier League and is in desperate need of a jump start in order to turn their season around.

Upon Tim Sherwood’s sacking after a 2-1 defeat to Swansea over the weekend, the rumour mill has spiral led out of control with potential managers to take up the role at Villa Park.

The potential replacement was rumoured to be former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers. However, The Birmingham Mail reported that if Moyes was to become available, Villa owner Randy Lerner may pounce at the opportunity.

With Sherwood gone the door is wide open at Villa Park and owner Randy Lerner has an abundance of managers to call upon. Villa fans have made their voices heard as they call for Moyes’ return to the Premier League, although it is unknown whether Scot will answer their pleas.
