Marca reports that the Scot, who was dismissed by the Red Devils 12 months ago prior to joining his current La Liga employers, admitted there is little he can do to stop speculation about a return to England.

But he stated that he is going nowhere, adding: “Obviously there are clubs in England who would be interested but my job and my plans haven’t changed.”

Moyes is on course to guide Sociedad to a mid-table finish in his debut season in Spain, and seems determined to make a success of his overseas stint before considering a Premier League comeback.

West Ham are widely-expected to appoint a new manager this summer, with current incumbent Sam Allardyce just weeks away from seeing his contract expire.

Moyes is attempting to rebuild his reputation after nine bruising months at Old Trafford, where the board of directors lost faith in the former Everton chief despite initially handing him a six-year contract upon his appointment.

He was given the unenviable task of succeeding serial trophy-winner Sir Alex Ferguson and early exits from both domestic cup competitions, plus poor league form, cost him his job, with United eventually turning to Louis van Gaal as his successor.
