Moyes had decided on remaining with Everton

David Moyes says he was planning to stay at Everton next season before the opportunity came to take over from the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. The 50 year old, whose Everton contract was due to expire this summer, agreed a six-year deal with United on Thursday.

Moyes said: "I wasn't planning on leaving. My contract was running out but we were planning for pre-season. All we've ever done is keep planning."
