Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard says it's crucial the club holds onto manager David Moyes.

So far highly-regarded Moyes, 49, has refused to commit beyond that date – and Everton keeper Howard believes that is a genuine cause for concern.

Howard, 33, said: “It’s a difficult conversation to start talking about where we go if the manager leaves. But it’s a conversation I want to have. It’s important.

“He’s obviously the figurehead of this club. He’s become the person everyone looks to.

“Whether a board member, a fan, a player, or a casual observer, your focal point is David Moyes.

“Everything trickles down from there. We have to have him in place.”
