West Brom boss Irvine: Moyes has been in touch

New West Bromwich Albion boss Alan Irvine has revealed David Moyes has been in touch since he landed the job.

Irvine worked with the former Manchester United manager at Everton.

Irvine said: "I've got about 260 text messages I have to reply to and voicemails and David's is in there.

"He basically said that if he could help in any way to give him a call, which I intend doing.

"We've always bounced things off each other. I was thrilled for him when he got the Manchester United job and for him to lose it so quickly is extremely sad."

He added: "That was all down to results and we're all judged on that.

"I'll have to give him a call and ask him for any pointers. Sadly he lost his job, but he will be back because he's a top manager.

"He's the type who looks at himself and won't blame anybody else. We'll catch up shortly but we might need a couple of hours because a lot has happened."
