‘Hopefully Santa visits La Real…’

David Moyes isn’t asking for any ‘Christmas presents’ in the January transfer window but is hopeful of new faces at Real Sociedad.

Moyes appeared at a Press conference prior to La Real’s trip to Levante and gave an update on the status of Carlos Vela, who may not be fit for the fixture.

“He’s certainly going to travel with us but we might not even know [if he’ll be fit] by tomorrow, but he’s such an important player we’ll give him room,” the Coach said, AS reports.

“I can’t say or not say because I don’t know. I hope so, but I don’t know. If Carlos can’t play the squad must show they can win the game. In the Copa del Rey against Real Oviedo there were good things and we’re improving.

“It’s very important to finish the year with a win. We want to be looking forward, not back, but historically this is a difficult match for us.”

Talk then turned to the transfer market and Moyes confirmed he would be discussing the month ahead with sporting director Loren.

“I won’t ask but you always hope Santa Claus brings you something for Christmas,” the former Everton and Manchester United manager said.

“We have to behave well. I hope I’ve been good this year. But we will be ready for January and we’ll see then if there are players interesting to La Real. I’ll speak with Loren and see if Santa can visit Zubieta.”
