Man Utd's Moyes: I warned Everton I'd be back for some players

David Moyes has revealed that he warned Everton chairman Bill Kenwright that he'd be back to speak to some of the players when he left to take the Manchester United job.

The Scotsman replaced Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford in the summer after more than a decade at Goodison Park but his loyalties now lie elsewhere and he insists he has plans to sign some current Toffees.

"Once I got the United job I discussed it with Bill near enough immediately," said Moyes who signed Marouane Fellaini in the summer and is now after Leighton Baines.

"I said that there would be some players I would be interested in.

"Bill was well aware of it but obviously it was always going to be a difficult thing when it actually came to it."

Ahead of Wednesday night's clash between the two clubs, Moyes added: "That is football. I speak with Bill Kenwright regularly. We both knew that this would happen but it is never that easy.

"But time moves on as well. Life is too short to hold any grudges.

"I had a great working relationship with Bill and the board of directors there and that is the way it remains."
