Real Sociedad manager David Moyes has ruled joining Newcastle United or West Ham United for the start of next season after a successful start to life in Spain.

The 52-year-old returned to management after being sacked by Manchester United in November when he moved to Sociedad where he has helped the club pull clear of La Liga'sd relegation zone, a spell which has included beat current leaders Barcelona.

Newcastle are expected to appoint a new permanent manager in the summer after eight successive defeats under temporary boss John Carver while the future of Sam Allardyce at West Ham United is uncertain with a new contract yet to be agreed.

However, Moyes has denied any interest in moving to Newcastle or West Ham and says he still has plenty or work to do with Sociedad, who are 11<sup>th in La Liga.

"There's always speculation, but I'm here to do the job," Moyes told The Guardian. "I'm going to be here. I want to try to get everything in place so we can be at our best for the start of next season.

"I don't think we need masses and masses, but there are improvements I'd like to make, things I want to change. Small things that will help. And if we do that. "I'll be here. I'm not going anywhere."

Despite being set to turn down any advances from Newcastle, West Ham and others interested in bringing Moyes back to the Premier League, he admits he turned down several offers from English clubs before making the "brave decision" to move to Spain.

"I think it was a brave decision," Moyes added. "I turned down Premier League jobs; I didn't think they were right. I would never have left Everton if it hadn't been Manchester United.

"I was [supposed to be] there six years and you think United give managers time. I'd worked incredibly hard to get to the top and it was taken away from me very quickly.

"I didn't want the disappointment to last. I had to take a step back and climb up again. I wanted somewhere I'd be allowed to work, where I could enjoy football again."
