Moyes to go Round at Saints

The People - - LIFESTYLE - EX­CLU­SIVE by Neil Mox­ley

STEVE ROUND is in the frame to take over as di­rec­tor of foot­ball at SOUTHAMP­TON – fu­elling sug­ges­tions that David Moyes is set to take over at St Mary’s.

The for­mer Ever­ton No.2 has just been sacked from his job at As­ton Villa where he was work­ing for Steve Bruce.

But he is one of the can­di­dates to fill the role va­cated by Les Reed af­ter the for­mer Eng­land youth coach was axed last month.

Reed was in­stru­men­tal in bring­ing Mark Hughes to the club – but the one-time Manch­ester United, Barcelona and Bay­ern Mu­nich striker is now liv­ing on bor­rowed time.

Hughes, 55, is tipped to lose his job if Saints flop against Tot­ten­ham at Wem­b­ley on Wed­nes­day.

Round is an ally of Moyes with the pair hav­ing worked to­gether at Good­i­son Park where the Scot put to­gether a com­pet­i­tive Ever­ton side that tasted Cham­pi­ons League foot­ball un­der his guid­ance.

Moyes has been out of work since leav­ing West Ham in May.

He de­liv­ered an­other topflight sea­son for own­ers David Sul­li­van and David Gold, only to be re­placed by Manuel Pel­le­grini.
