Former Sunderland manager David Moyes has said that neither the Hibernian or the Hearts job would interest him at this current moment.

Both Edinburgh clubs are currently without a manager after Craig Levein left Hearts, and Paul Heckingbottom left his post at Hibernian, both within the last week.

The Scottish Premier League sides have had awful starts to the season, with Hearts currently sitting second bottom, while Hibs are just one point and one place above them.

Reports had surfaced in recent weeks linking David Moyes with a move back to his native Scotland, but he has today come out and said that neither of these jobs are of any interest to him.

As quoted by BBC Sports, the Scotsman, who last appeared as a manager from Premier League West Ham United back in 2018, said: “Hopefully someday I may well come back but at the moment it’s not just now.”

“Neither job would be of any interest to me. I wouldn’t say I wouldn’t move back to Scotland. Scotland is my love and Glasgow is where I’m from.”

David Moyes’ time at Sunderland was far from successful. He joined the club in July 2016, replacing Sam Allardyce as the club’s manager, but that season was a disaster for Sunderland, and the start of their fall from grace.
