Phil Neville is in talks with Valencia but has not been appointed despite the Spanish club claiming the former England defender is their new assistant manager.

Valencia announced the appointment of Neville, 38, on their official website. However, Neville has told the BBC that while talks are ongoing, there is a way to go before any deal is done.

Second Captains

Neville was a coach at Manchester United under David Moyes and has been working as a television pundit. He would replace Scot Ian Cathro, who is set to join Steve McClaren’s backroom staff at Newcastle.

Should the appointment go ahead, it would mean Neville, who earned 59 England caps, will this season come up against Moyes, who was sacked as United boss in 2014, with the former Everton manager in charge of Real Sociedad.
