Moyes has done a fantastic job with the Toffees and any successor will have big shoes to fill at the Merseyside club, although Phil Neville is clearly interested in the vacant position despite a lack of managerial experience.
Neville has recently called time on his playing career at Everton and it was thought that he might have one final hurrah at another club before hanging up his boots.
However, it appears that he could be ready to go into management, with Phil Neville telling The Times that he’s open to the idea of taking charge of Everton.
“It is flattering to be linked with the Everton job,” said Neville, quoted in The Times.
“There is a structure in place where the new man who comes in will not have that much to do.
“I am at the end of my career and I am looking to get into coaching and management. It’s just whatever direction the club want to take.
“It would be a good job. But I know there are players who have gone into jobs and failed. I have prepared. I have prepared for the last five seasons and I have some nice decisions to make.
“I have had a lot of experience, studying coaching practices. I have been away with England Under-21s. I’m half-prepared for what I’m going into.”
