Everton boss Ancelotti pushed about Coleman, James and King contracts

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti admits player contract talks must wait.

Ancelotti was not willing to give much away at today's presser for their clash with Aston Villa.

Asked about Seamus Coleman and James Rodriguez, the Everton boss said: "We are not talking about this, some positions we have to discuss but sporting director Marcel Brands is involved in this and is going to talk to players in the next few weeks."

Pressed on James, Ancelotti added: "He has two years, plus one [year] option so we have time to talk about it. We don't need to talk about it, we can do this in the next few months."

Asked about Joshua King, he added: "At the end of the season we are going to talk about whether he will stay."
