Bill Kenwright says Everton will not rush the process of finding a replacement for Manchester United-bound David Moyes.

The Toffees boss has agreed to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford, with the 50-year-old set take over on a six-year deal on 1 July.

Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay, Swansea manager Michael Laudrup and Mark Hughes are among the names linked with the Goodison Park position.

But Everton chairman Kenwright insisted the Merseyside outfit would wait until the end of the season before finding a replacement.

“We will not be making a quick decision, we will be taking time,” said Kenwright. “We’ll get the season over and then we will hopefully give some indication of where we are going.”

Kenwright also praised Everton’s performance in a 2-0 victory over West Ham United as Moyes ended his 11-year reign in style at Goodison Park.

“It was a great victory, a great performance,” he added.

“It was a great performance by the team, it was a great performance by the crowd and, once again, a great performance by a great manager.”
