Phil Jagielka: Hopes David Moyes will stay

The Scot is out of contract at the end of the season and has insisted he does not expect to open talks over a new deal until the summer.

This has led to intense speculation that Moyes could be set to bring his Goodison Park reign to an end after more than a decade in charge.

"We haven't done too bad in the ten years or so that he has been here. It's not like we have under-achieved. If anything, we have slightly over-achieved in terms of budgets and transfer funds," said Jagielka.

"We don't have to feel that we have to prove anything. The manager has pretty much brought every single player in, bar one or two, so we are his players.

"He has made decisions that he wants to make. He has come out in the press and said he will not sign anything until the end of the season, which is fine with us."

Jagielka was talking after Everton's 2-2 draw with Oldham, which saw them into the FA quarter-final draw where they could face Wigan at home.

"Obviously, it will be nice to give him a quick reminder of how good we are by keeping this cup run going and pushing as high as we can up the Premier League," he said.

"At the end of the day, if we do win the cup and he doesn't sign, it will still be a fantastic feat for the players.

"We are a very close squad and we get on very well. As much as we go out there to do it for the manager, we do it for each other as well.

"Obviously, the fans, too. We had a good following today and the fans are brilliant, too. So there is more than one person there to play for."

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.

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!
