David Moyes is considering returning for Athletic Bilbao's Ander Herrera in the January transfer window, with the Manchester United manager conscious he has to strengthen his midfield resources. If Moyes were to move again for the 24-year-old he may hope to prise him from Bilbao for less than his €36m (£29.9m) buyout clause as the player has struggled to reclaim his form in the early part of the Spanish season. A deal to buy Herrera in the summer failed after United refused to pay the fee with the Basque club unwilling to lower the price due, in part, to their policy of only fielding players from the region.
