New Real Sociedad boss David Moyes is reportedly considering launching bids for Manchester United out-of-favour winger Ashley Young and Tottenham's misfiring striker Roberto Soldado ahead of the January transfer window.

The Scottish boss was appointed as the new man in charge at the Anoeta Stadium last week in order to resuscitate Real Sociedad's season with the club lying 15th in La Liga with just two victories from the first 11 games.

The former Manchester United manager is said to be addressing his current squad before making any transfer decisions but the Sunday People reports he is likely to bring both Premier League players to La Liga during the January transfer window.

Young had plenty of action during the Scot's time at Old Trafford, making 28 appearances, but has struggled under new boss Louis van Gaal.

After starting three Premier League games of the campaign, the England international has fallen behind new signing Angel Di Maria in the pecking order on the left-side and, according to reports, would be keen to reunite with his former boss in La Liga.

Meanwhile, Soldado is also said to be at the top of Moyes's January shopping list because, unlike the Premiership, he enjoys a good reputation in La Liga – where he scored 24 La Liga goals before completing a £26m move to White Hart Lane in summer 2013.

Soldado was already linked with an exit from Spurs during the summer and, after having started only two Premier League games under Mauricio Pochettino this season, the Argentinian boss may accept to finally part ways with him in January.
