Moyes was desperate to sign Keane for Everton

Everton boss Dave Moyes admits he tried desperately to sign Roy Keane.

The Scot tried to sign Keane after the Irishman announced he was quitting Manchester United as a player two years ago.

But Keane opted for Celtic - much to Moyes' disappointment.

Moyes said: "I like Roy's style. He was more interested in the team and the club than personal success.

"It wasn't a case of me, me, me with Roy. I liked the thought of working with that type of person.

"Not only would we have been good for him, but I think Roy would have been good for us as well.

"He has taken to management well and has been successful in a short space of time."
