David Moyes will tell Bill Kenwright he needs £15million to book Everton a return to Europe.

Moyes is set for talks with Goodison chairman Kenwright in the next few days to discuss transfer plans.

And the Toffees boss will point out that £15m will be ­required to challenge for a top-six finish.

Moyes is reluctant to sell prized asset Jack ­Rodwell. Instead he wants to build a team around the £15m Manchester United target rather than sell him to fund new signings.

Moyes, who has ruled out a bid for Michael Owen, said: “I’ll have a chat with the chairman in the next few days.

“We could finish seventh this season, but seventh place might be as good as it gets for Everton.

“It’s going to be tougher next season.”

The Mail on Sunday


Randy Lerner will reluctantly sack Aston Villa Gerard Houllier for the sake of the manager's health.

And Villa's American owner will immediately target Everton boss David Moyes as the man he wants to take over.

Although Houllier is desperate to stay on, sources close to the club have indicated that Lerner is concerned about the 63-year-old's long-term well-being after heart problems

Fulham's Mark Hughes and former England coach Steve McClaren are also on the club's radar.

Star on Sunday



DAVID MOYES will tell Everton chairman Bill Kenwright that he needs £15million to challenge for a European spot next season.

David Moyes has drawn up a list of targets to present to Kenwright during crunch talks at Goodison this week.

He has ruled out going for high-earners like Michael Owen, who is out of contract at Manchester United this summer.

Instead, Moyes will tell Kenwright that £15m is all he needs to freshen up his squad and challenge for a Europa League spot.

He has made it clear he wants to build a team around the likes of Jack Rodwell rather than sell his prized asset to raise funds for new signings.

Everton will cement a highly respectable top-seven finish if they avoid defeat against Chelsea in their final match today.

But Moyes reckons it will be much tougher next season to secure a similar position. And the Scotsman will plead with Kenwright for funds so he can make a realistic challenge for a European spot.

Moyes said: “I’ll have a chat with the ­chairman next week.

“Seventh place might be as good as it gets for Everton. I think it’s going to be tougher next season.”

Joshua MearsNow this is what i've been waiting to here!! Instead of selling our best players if Moyes gets this £15million, that should be enough to get the decent players we need to challenge for europe plus the cash from selling the players we don't need i.e Yakubu, Vaughn & Yobo. Hope his request gets the answer we all want. COYB

Cason TangOdemwegie didn't cost West Brom a lot. N'Zogia didn't cost Wigan a lot. These are good players who can fit in our squad. I think Moyes should look at his scouts and discover someone like them. Sad to say that 8 million spent on Bily seemed like too much after two up-and-down seasons. I hope Moyes can use the 15 m wisely if he is granted the money. Also please change the formation. It is difficult to sign good strikers if they know you will only play one up.

stephen greenHope he can get 15m, as i believe that we do only need 2 players a pacey winger/ striker and a target man to score 20+ goals. We may need to sell those out on lone and possibly Billy, pick up a few clever frees and loans like Wellbeck, Larsen, Westwood, Boothroyd and then Bill only needs to find a fw million
