David Moyes will consider an approach from the Jordanian FA to manage their national team if he fails to get the Sunderland job, according to a report.

The Mirror have claimed on their ‘transfer news live’ page that the former Everton and Manchester United boss may move to international management with the Jordan national side, if Sam Allardyce remains at Sunderland.

The experienced manager has been out of work since November when sacked by Real Sociedad and is among those being considered at the Stadium of Light should Allardyce get the England job.

However, Moyes could make a shock move to manage Jordan.

This would largely be considered a shock as the 53-year-old left the Toffees to manage Euro giants Manchester United in 2013 to replace the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson.

However, he struggled at Old Trafford and failed to complete a full season in charge of the Red Devils.

Moyes subsequently had a stint in Spain with Real Sociedad, but he again failed to complete a year at the club and left with a less than impressive 28.57% win percentage from his 42 matches in charge of the club.

Jordan are ranked 78th in the world Fifa rankings and they have never qualified for the World Cup.

Former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp had a brief spell in charge of Jordan 2016, but saw mixed results with an 8-0 win against Bangladesh before suffering a 5-1 defeat against Australia.

In other Everton news, the Toffees have been installed odds-on favourites to sign Zenit Saint Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel.
