Moyes not pressed about future



Everton manager David Moyes says he is in no rush to sign a new contract with the club, despite his side's impressive start to the Premier League season.

Moyes' current deal is due to expire at the end of the campaign but he says he is happy to wait to see how the season pans out before committing himself to a new contract.

"No doubt I will be asked the question every week, but I'm in no great hurry," Moyes said on Friday.

"I just want the season to go on, see how we do and overall, if we do well, it will make things a lot easier.

"I want to see how we are progressing and also I don't want supporters to get too sick of seeing the same manager all the time.

"I am not (concerned), but I can understand maybe people will be.

"I can understand why at this time people would say it is quite close but all I can say is, I've been here over 10 years now, we've worked really hard together with the club, and we'll continue to do so.

"I have a great relationship with the chairman (Bill Kenwright). We speak every day and when the time is right, we will sit down and see what we are going to do.

"It might be we wait until later in the year before we sort things out."

Everton are fourth in the table ahead of Saturday's away game at Reading, but Moyes – who has been at the club since March 2002 – says it would be dangerous to get carried away.

Asked if he was excited by his side's form, he said: "Quite, but not madly.

"We've only played 11 games and there are a lot of good teams below us – Tottenham, Liverpool, Arsenal, Newcastle – who could quite easily jump over us, and West Brom are having a great season as well.

"I am not going to say we have no chance because we have got a chance, but the competition is really tough.

"For Everton it is very rare for us to say we are having a good start.

"If we can have a second half to the season what we've had in recent years tagged on to this then it could be an exciting season – but there are a lot of ifs."
