David Moyes In Line To Replace Sacked Gary Rowett At Stoke City

Stoke City have opened up the search for a new manager following the sacking of Gary Rowett who leaves the Championship club after only eight months at the helm.

Rowett, who replaced Paul Lambert in the summer, paid the price for an underwhelming opening half of the season during which the Potters have scraped only eight wins from 26 matches, leaving the club 14th in the table, eight points adrift of the play-offs.

Rumours are rife that David Moyes is now set to return to management with Stoke.

Moyes has been out of action since May when West Ham opted not to hand him a new contract after six months in charge.

Prior to his stint at the Hammers Moyes endured a forgettable spell at Sunderland, while he has not managed in the second-tier of English football since Preston back in 2002.

Moyes can currently be backed as the evens frontrunner for the vacancy, ahead of the likes of former Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic, Aberdeen’s Derek McInnes, and Martin O’Neill.

The club have revealed that Rory Delap (12/1), Kevin Russell and Andy Quy will take over the first-team affairs while they look to make a swift appointment.

Stoke, who have not won this side of Christmas, are next in action away to Brentford on Saturday.
