Everton boss David Moyes has today revealed he will hold off from making a decision regarding his future beyond the end of the season.

The 49-year-old’s contract at Goodison Park expires this summer, and it is thought that club officials are growing concerned over the Scot’s reluctance to put pen to paper on a new deal.

Moyes, who won the Premier League Manager of the month at the start of the season, has been with Everton since leaving Preston North End 11 years ago. He is liked and well respected by both the players and fans alike, but there is  a fear that he thinks he can do no more for the club in its difficult financial position.

Speaking at a press conference, Moyes said: “I’ll give as much as I can, and I’ve spoken with the chairman and I want to see how the team does. I want to see how we do in the cups, I want to see how we do in the league and it’s more than likely that I won’t make a decision until the end of the season so you can ask me every week, but I’ll probably give you the same answer.”

Everton head to Boundary Park at the weekend in the 5th round of the FA Cup and the Scotsman will be keen to see his team progress against the side who knocked out Liverpool in the same competition last month.

At present the Toffees sit in sixth place in the Premier League, just two points behind Arsenal in the final Europa League spot and more importantly for the fans, six points ahead of struggling rivals Liverpool in ninth.
