David Moyes is to remain as manager of Everton for another 5 years.
Despite a difficult start to the season for the Merseyside club (they’re currently' 15th in the Premier League and out of the Uefa Cup) the Scot ended speculation about his future by signing a new deal that will keep him at Goodison park until 2013.
The deal was agreed despite Everton owner Bill Kenwright recently revealing that he’d be willing to sell the club to a buyer with the kind of spending power to match the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City.
Speaking to the club’s web site, Moyes said:
The big thing for me is that I am at Everton, as far as I am concerned, for another five years.
The job is to make us better than we have been.
I am really excited and really pleased. I am pleased for everybody – I’m pleased for myself and my family who were desperate to get it signed and secured and it is always what I wanted to do.
