David Moyes has told beIN Sport he would be interested in becoming West Ham United manager if the job becomes available.
In the aftermath of West Ham's 4-1 home defeat to Liverpool on Saturday, sources close to West Ham told ESPN FC that manager Slaven Bilic would be sacked and replaced by ex-Manchester United boss Moyes.
Bilic has been under increasing pressure after disappointing results left West Ham just outside the relegation zone. Sources said the Liverpool match was likely to be the last of his tenure, adding that the West Ham hierarchy felt the timing was right to make a change, with the forthcoming international break giving a new manager time to settle in before the game at Watford on Nov. 19.
Moyes said: "I've had no contact from West Ham. I always said I want to go back into club management. That would be my choice and, if the right opportunity comes around, I would be interested.
"I'm interested [in West Ham], but until that vacancy comes available, and at the moment it's not available... I know what Slaven is going through, and he must be hating it and wanting to get a result as quickly as possible.
"If it comes available yes, and at the moment it's not available. Unfortunately for me to get back in [to club management] means a manager would have to lose his job, and I wouldn't wish that on anybody."
Moyes said he did not mind whether his next club was in the north or south "if I feel it's a good club."
And he added that although he wanted to manage Scotland "one day," he did not feel now was the right time for that.
"At the moment, my aim is to go back into club management," he said. "I would like to manage my country some day, but not just now."
