Speaking ahead of his side’s controversial 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United on Friday, Moyes said: “We’re looking at the team we’re bringing together. I can’t say if we’re going to get it all together just now – it might not be until the summer before I do.

“There are several people though…and others we will have in mind as well. We have been extremely busy. It is not easy to get all those right away.

“Joe is one of quite a lot of people who we have talked about and are considering.”
