Former Manchester United manager, David Moyes has agreed to manage Spanish side, Real Sociedad. The two parties had been in discussion over a potential deal for the past weeks and now the club have confirmed the arrival of the Scottish boss.

The club also confirmed the deal on their Twitter account late last night.

Moyes replaces Jagoba Arrasate, who was dismissed by Sociedad after a poor run of form which currently sees them lie 15th in La Liga. The Scot has penned a contract to June 2016 and will take charge for the first time at Deportivo on 22 November.

Moyes steps back into management for the first time since April after being let go by Manchester United after just 10 months in charge at Old Trafford. Moyes now becomes the fourth British manager of Sociedad, behind Harry Lowe, John Toshack and Chris Coleman.

Will the former Preston, Everton and United boss succeed in Spain?
