Everton boss David Moyes has said that he will wait until the summer before deciding on his future with the Merseyside club.
The Scots current contract with the Toffees expires at the end of the season and there has been plenty of rumours regarding his long-term future. At a press conference ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup fifth-round tie against Oldham, Moyes admitted he had held discussions with club chairman Bill Kenwright but he is in no rush to commit to a new deal until the season finishes.
“I’ve spoken with the chairman and I want to see how the team do. I want to see how we do in the cups and the league and it is more than likely that I won’t make a decision until the end of the season. You can ask me every week but I will probably give you the same answer.”
Moyes will begin his eleventh season in charge of the Toffees next month, and his time at the club has been regarded as a success despite not yet winning any silverware. Everton are still in contention to qualify for the Champions League this season, having enjoyed a fine campaign to date. Having lost just four times and claiming 42 points from 26 games, the Toffees are sixth in the Premier League table.
