David Moyes has said that he is in no rush to sign a new contract with Everton despite having just a year to go on his current deal with the club.
Moyes, who stalled on signing his last deal after making lots of noise about wanting to see investment, but eventually signed on the dotted line.
‘I speak with Bill every day but I plan to go down and see him to discuss things,’ he said. ‘I’ve got a year to go anyway so it’s not as though it’s absolutely desperate (for me to sign).
‘I don’t need reassurances about managing Everton. A lot of people would love the opportunity that I’m in and for me to have been here 10 years is incredible. But I want to be able to compete and I want to be ambitious. I want to give the people something more to shout about than we have done.
“I’m looking forward to ending [the season] now because for long parts of this season we weren’t anywhere to be seen.
“There was even moments earlier on in the season when we were nearer to relegation than we were to the top end of the league so that shows you where we were mentally as well.
“We didn’t think we were doing well enough but I think what you can do with a little bit of money we got made a big difference for us. It certainly boosted us and I know it boosted all the Evertonians because you see them singing Jelavic’s name.
“You can see what they think of Steven Pienaar, I think they’re all appreciating Darron Gibson, Landon Donovan was always one of the favourites from his last time here.
“And, more importantly, it’s inspired all the other players who were already here who were good players but were needing a lift to improve.”
