Everton yet to approach West Ham's David Moyes for the manager job

West Ham United boss David Moyes is in the running for the Everton job but is yet to be approached, according to Daily Mail.

The Toffees want to land a new boss as soon as possible after Carlo Ancelotti’s unexpected departure last week, and have been linked with a move for one of their former managers.

However, the Daily Mail say: “Everton have a good relationship with West Ham and it is doubtful whether they would agree to an approach for the Scot.”

The Hammers are looking to hand Moyes a new deal, and it seems Everton have to look elsewhere.

Class

Toffees majority shareholder and owner Farhad Moshiri has proven his class again, choosing not to put our relationship with West Ham at risk by making an approach for their manager.

The Everton chief is clearly not desperate and would not go to any lengths to get a manager.

Moyes was at Goodison Park for 11 years before leaving for Manchester United in 2013, and while he has come in for harsh criticisms ever since, he has redeemed his image at West Ham over both of his stints.

We would have loved to have him back, but it does not appear that is likely at the moment.

The club is not short of manager targets, though, and we can only hope we get the right one capable of leading us to Europe next season after Ancelotti’s underwhelming era.

Marcel Brands and Bill Kenwright can be relied upon to deliver, and fans will be eagerly waiting to see who succeeds the Italian in the Goodison Park dugout.

We can rule out Moyes now.
