Moyes unfazed by lack of new deal

David Moyes has entered the final twelve months of his contract at Everton.

But while it's an uncertain time for a player when they get towards the end of their playing contract, it isn't something that concerns David Moyes.

'I don't think the managers' contract is that important, it is more important we get the players sorted,' Moyes told Sky Sports.

He continued: 'It is not desperate. I have a contract here and I am more than happy. It certainly doesn't affect my work.

Everyone had assumed that contract negotiations had begun at Goodison Park when Moyes was being heavily linked with the Tottenham Hotspur managerial position following the sacking of Harry Redknapp.

But with the appointment of Andre Villas-Boas perhaps there is no longer a rush to conclude talks?

Either way the important thing is, at least publicly that Moyes is happy and has even hinted at some more additions to the squad over the summer.

He added: 'I told everyone I was getting on with my job and that is what would be happening and I'm looking forward to adding more to the squad.'

In recent weeks he really looks likes he is loving the job again, he seems to be really positive about the future, and I think this is the happiest he has been in a while. Finally has a fighting chance in the window, doesn't have to sell his players, and by the way he talked yesterday, seems more signings are to be expected with Pranjic, Pienaar and Rodallega seemingly being the next on the list.

Seeing as Moyes is one of the highest paid managers in world football and our side is really blossoming again, he is doing the right thing in not rushing a new contract. If we do well this season (as expected) it gives Moyes a bargaining tool to keep our best players especially in light of the improved financial set-up.

Moyes is doing a great job and seems to be as passionate as he was 10 years ago and i can't see him going anywhere
