David Moyes remains the highest paid person at Everton.

The Daily Mail says Moyes's reward for keeping Everton as a PL force for over a decade in charge on limited resources is a salary approaching £4million a year, which is more than Everton's best paid player, Marouane Fellaini, earns.

Everton's wage bill for last season was £63.4m, which amounts to 75 per cent of turnover with a net loss of £9.1m.

Chairman Bill Kenwright writes: "It's acknowledged throughout the length and breadth of the land. But it's important to repeat it here. We totally trust David Moyes and his staff to scout and identify the players with the right DNA for Everton."
