The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
Talk in today's newspapers is very much about who's heading where, with the Liverpool Echo linking Jurgen Klinsmann with the vacant Everton manager’s post and Phil Neville being widely tipped for a senior coaching role at Stoke City.
It is also reported across both national and local media that midfielder Leon Osman is to sign a new two-year contract with the Blues.
The Liverpool Echo report the odds have been slashed on former Germany international Klinsmann after he followed the Club's official Twitter account. He also visited Finch Farm in his capacity as USA boss in 2011 and is a known admirer of the outgoing David Moyes.
The same paper also reflects on Leighton Baines' latest achievement - completing every minute of a Premier League campaign for the second time. Watch an interview with Leighton here.
The Independent is one of numerous national newspapers to link Neville with Stoke after Pulis left the Potters yesterday. It is suggested Stoke chairman Peter Coates has made contact through his associates at the FA.
In the Guardian and Daily Telegraph, Neville is himself quoted, backing former Blues boss Moyes to be a success at Manchester United, while the Times and Daily Express say our former captain is 'flattered' to have been put forward as his possible replacement.
After much speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United, the Daily Mail believe left-back Leighton Baines is now likely to stay at Goodison Park. They suggest, however, that Moyes will return to the Club in an attempt to sign teenage midfielder Ross Barkley.
