David Moyes says he will wait until the end of the season before discussing a new contract with Everton.

The 49-year-old’s current Toffees deal is set to expire in the summer, with the Scotsman touted as a possible successor to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

Everton are six points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur as the Merseyside outfit gear up for a trip to Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup fifth round on Saturday.

And Moyes is keen to see how the remainder of season pans out before deciding if his future lies with Everton.

“I’ve spoken with the chairman and I want to see how the team do. I want to see how we do in the cups and the league and it is more than likely that I won’t make a decision until the end of the season.

“You can ask me every week but I will probably give you the same answer.”

Meanwhile, Moyes is optimistic that Nikica Jelavic will be raring to go if the striker is reinstated into Everton’s starting line-up for the FA Cup tie after dropping to the bench for their 2-0 loss at United last weekend.

“I don’t know what it does for anybody but you hope that they sit back and look at exactly what they have to do to get back into the team and get their real form back,” he added.

“It’s part of football. Hopefully when he gets his opportunity he will be ready to take it. Maybe a little bit of a rest at times can help.”
