Announcement to be made Thursday surrounding the imminent appointment.
David Moyes is to be named the new manager of Manchester United on Thursday, according to BBC Sport.
Moyes became the early favourite to take the job once Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement Wednesday morning, and saw his odds shorten with bookmakers throughout the day.
After a brilliant tenure at Everton, where he lead the cash-strapped side to a Champions League appearance in 2006, and has been able to keep the Merseyside team in constant European contention despite the lack of activity in the transfer market.
Moyes will go to Old Trafford and be under immediate pressure to carry on the work that Ferguson had done.
Considered to be one of the best in man-management, the Scot will need to quickly win over the dressing room, whilst also evaluating the available to talent to make sure they stay competitive next season.
This will also be the first time the Everton manager will work with a large transfer budget, and with his level of talent scouting coupled with money to spend, he could be able to build a very strong Champions League team in the near future.
