Real Sociedad have quashed speculation that David Moyes will leave the club this summer - with Sunderland one of the clubs linked with the former Manchester United boss.

Moyes, who also managed Everton, took the helm of Real Sociedad in November with the club just above the drop zone and steered them to a 12th-placed finish.

The Scot has been linked with West Ham and Sunderland this summer but Sociedad president Jokin Aperribay is unaware of any offers for the 52-year-old, who is under contract with the Primera Division club until June 2016.

Aperribay said on his club’s official website: “Moyes has never spoken to us about this.

“If anything, we have heard these rumours from the media. He has never suggested the possibility to go back to England.

“We made an important structural decision by bringing in David Moyes last year.

“He has been planning for next season since the month of January.”
