Everton's Phil Neville could play abroad if not offered a contract extension with the Toffees. "I want to keep playing for as long as I can," the 35 year old former Manchester United man, who moved to Everton in 2005, told The Independent.

"At least one more year at the top level if I can. I still have ambitions. For instance, I've always wanted to sample playing abroad, a different culture and different life-experience for all the family.

"Time's running out, I know, and if the gaffer [David Moyes] comes to me in January and wants me to stay another year then the decisions made for me."
