Everton boss David Moyes' contract stalemate has been labelled 'disappointing' by Goodison Park legend Alan Stubbs.
Moyes' contract is up at the end of the season.
Former Toffees star Stubbs, now a reserve team coach at the club, said: "The manager has got his destiny in his own hands now.
"He's done a fantastic job. He's basically irreplaceable - but he's probably looking at his career and looking for that next challenge."
