Former Everton manager David Moyes is eyeing a summer move for Bryan Oviedo according to the Express.

The Real Sociedad boss is reportedly keen to sign the Costa Rican, who he brought to Goodison Park during his spell at the English club.

Oviedo himself has found game time hard to come by under Moyes' replacement Roberto Martinez, having made just 11 appearances since returning from a broken leg in September.

Whether the Blues would want to lose the defender is another matter entirely. He has impressed when given game time, scoring a late winner against Manchester United at Old Trafford last season to endear him to the Everton faithful.

He has recently featured in the side in the absence of Leighton Baines, but is unlikely to ever replace the England man long-term, especially with young left back Luke Garbutt also fighting for a place.

In that regard, he may fancy a move to Spain to link up with his former manager once again.
