Everton U21 coach Alan Stubbs is confident they can keep hold of manager David Moyes.
Stubbs believes the club can hold on to the 41-year-old but only if he‚Äôs handed the challenge, and the funds, to get Everton into the top-four.
‚ÄúDavid Moyes has got his destiny in his own hands,‚ÄĚ he told talkSPORT. ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs done a fantastic job at Everton, just look at what he‚Äôs had to spend and where he‚Äôs taken the club.
‚ÄúWe are now looked upon as one of the most difficult teams to play against. We have consistently finished in the last five, six, seven years around the top six places, which is an incredible achievement with what we‚Äôve had to spend. When you look at it, you have to say he‚Äôs irreplaceable.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs probably looking at his career now though and wondering about the next challenge. If that could be at Everton, and it would mean getting money off the chairman and making them a top four club, then he would definitely stay here, but he is probably asking questions of the chairman.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs in no rush to sign a new deal and that‚Äôs probably he most disappointing thing from Everton‚Äôs point of view.‚ÄĚ
