New Manchester United manager David Moyes is planning a number of changes to the coaching staff at Old Trafford, with retiring Everton defender Phil Neville set for a role, according to the Guardian.

The 36-year-old is out of contract with the Toffees and widely expected to retire from playing this summer, though it was originally thought that he was keen to move straight into management with either Everton or Stoke City.

However, Stoke seem set to appoint Mark Hughes as their new manager, and Wigan’s Roberto Martinez seems to be the favourite for the Everton job, paving way for Neville to follow Moyes to Old Trafford.

The former England international made nearly 400 appearances for United in his playing days, before moving to Goodison Park in 2005 and enjoying something of a renaissance under Moyes’ guidance.

He could now work under Moyes again as first team coach of his old club United, replacing the departing Rene Meulensteen, whose contract has been terminated by Moyes, along with assistant manager Mike Phelan, Eric Steele, and Martin Ferguson.

Moyes is also expected to bring Steve Round, Chris Woods and Robbie Cooke to his backroom staff from Everton.
