Everton boss Moyes taking time over Irvine replacement

Everton boss Dave Moyes says he'll take his time finding a replacement for former assistant manager Alan Irvine, who is now in charge of Preston.

Moyes said: "I will wait a few weeks before appointing a successor to Alan.

"He will be missed and played a big part in our success, but it is right that he has the chance now to become a manager in his own right.

"Preston did ask for my views and I gave him a glowing recommendation, I hope he is a great success there.

"I will now wait a while, have a good look around, and then decide.

"I have good people who can help me, Jimmy Lumsden and Andy Holden, but I will bring in a new man, maybe even two in the end.

"The process will not be as quick as everyone seems to think, I will have a good look around and take my time.

"I do have people here who can cope, but I will bring people in, maybe two.

"Some times you do need changes to freshen things up a little, and that is what I will do."
