The duo were speaking at the club's end of the season awards, with Moyes set to call time on his Goodison Park career before moving to Manchester United this summer.

"When he came to me when we first met, he said 'chairman, you are not going down', and he has kept us there and he has taken us forward," said Kenwright.

"Although we will miss him like there is no tomorrow, I promise you David, we will just maintain what you have started and I won't let you down."

Moyes added: "I have always wanted to give the players all we can and I told them we would be at the top of the league and keep getting better.

"This group of players is great - they police themselves, in training every day they demand it and they will not allow that to change, they know the standards and they know what is required."

Everton's Player of the Year Leighton Baines hopes the club can keep moving forward next season.

He added: "We have performed well against the top sides and we have taken steps forward and have just fallen a little short of what we hoped."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
