Scot will now wait until the summer before deciding on his future.
European champions Chelsea have been put on alert by the news that Everton manager David Moyes has now decided to wait until the end of the season before deciding on whether to remain in charge at Goodison Park beyond this summer or not.
The Scot had initially stated that he would make a final decision on his Toffees future in Feb, however, speaking at his weekly press conference on Friday, the Everton boss revealed a change of plan.
“I want to see how we do in the cups, I want to see how we do in the league, and it’s more than likely I won’t make a decision until the end of the season,” said Moyes, whose current contract with the Merseysiders runs out at the end of the present campaign.
“I’ll give as much as I can, but I’ve said – and I’ve spoken with the chairman – that I want to see how the team does.”
And, this change of heart by Moyes will not have gone unnoticed at Stamford Bridge, where the Blues are currently on the lookout for a new head coach to replace their interim manager Rafa Benitez, with the Spaniard set to leave west London this summer.
