Moyes wants Everton to match his ambition

Everton boss Dave Moyes admits his future at Goodison Park depends in the board matching his ambitions.

Moyes told the Daily Mail: "The future, as I see it, is being with a club who match my ambition and that means keeping our best players and adding even better ones.

"When you look at the cups, this is the first season we have had any joy in any of them. We need to be in semi-finals and finals regularly, just as we need to be competing at the top in the League, year-in year-out.

"Whichever way you look at it, it all comes down to money. Whether we move to a new ground or redevelop Goodison, we have to be able to generate enough income to keep adding to the squad.

"I want other players to look at Everton and see a vibrant up-and-coming young team. The likes of Mikel Arteta, Tim Cahill, Andy Johnson, Joleon Lescott and Phil Jagielka have all committed themselves to long-term deals, and I want them to be saying: 'Boy, oh boy, there is some future here'.

"I owe it to them to bring in more players who can keep the improvement going.

"I don't foresee any problems and I know Bill will give me every penny he has. Like any manager, though, I am going to ask for more."
