Everton boss David Moyes will speak with chairman Bill Kenwright about a summer transfer budget before deciding whether to sign a new contract.

The People says Moyes will speak to owner Kenwright about his plans after the end of the season and the size of his budget will be a key factor in the ­biggest call of his career.

He is ready to take time off from the game if he feels he has taken Everton as far as he can - and it will take some persuading and ­significant investment to make him stay.

Meanwhile, Everton are considering a move for Cardiff boss Malky Mackay if Moyes does leave.
