4/9 Manchester United are 4/9 with William Hill to finish in the top four of the Premier League

Moyes was in talks with Galatasaray during the summer, only for Cesare Prandelli to be appointed, and feels his experiences at Old Trafford will serve him well ahead of potential role at another high-profile club.

"I’m ready to go," he told The Telegraph. "I’ve no time scale. I’m enjoying the break but I’m a football man and I want to work. I feel my best years are still ahead of me and I do feel I am still a young manager.

"I’ve lots to learn and lots I want to  put into practice. I think I am better equipped to take over a job like Manchester United now than even when I did take over because I’ve had a chance to see what happens, what goes on.

"I felt I was ready when I left Everton, but, obviously, when you get in, you see things and you realise that experience and knowledge you can only get from being in the job. But, unfortunately, I only got nine months."
