Everton boss Dave Moyes' future could hang on tomorrow night's UEFA Cup clash at Standard Liege.

The Daily Mail says rumours persist linking him with Newcastle, Celtic and even Tottenham, and there are concerns he may see a UEFA Cup exit at the hands of Standard Liege tomorrow as the final straw, following difficulties in the transfer market during the summer and continuing uncertainty over his new contract.

Behind an enduring sense of loyalty towards Everton, Moyes is dismayed by the way his transfer plans had to go on hold for so long and unhappy that his achievement in securing a UEFA Cup place, despite rival managers having bigger budgets, has gone relatively unrecognised.
