LONDON - Manchester United is expected to give retired Alex Ferguson's job to another scotsman David Moyes.

The Everton manager was tipped for this post soon after 71-year-old Ferguson announced his retirement on Wednesday morning after almost 27 trophy-filled years in charge at Old Trafford.

Moyes held talks late Wednesday with Everton chairman Bill Kenwright, who said Moyes' contract will expire in six weeks and has every right to choose his future.

The 50-year-old Moyes coaches Everton for 11 years, somehow assembling his fellow scotsman at United in the terms of loyalty and staying power.
