36 year old midfielder set for talks with chairman Bill Kenwright.
Everton midfielder Phil Neville could be set for a sensational appointment as David Moyes’ successor as Everton manager according to The Daily Star.
The Goodison Park club have been rocked in recent days following the announcement that Moyes will be appointed as the replacement for retiring Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
It had been known for some time that Moyes’ contract was due to expire at the end of the season but it still came as a shock to hear of the appointment as many had believed Moyes would put pen to paper on a new deal.
Everton have now begun the search for Moyes’ replacement but are keen to keep costs down and would prefer to avoid having to pay out a hefty compensation package.
That could pave the way for Neville to take up a place in the Everton dugout, supported by another former Toffee, Alan Stubbs.
Neville was thought to be set to leave the club at the end of this season after the club announced they would not be renewing his current deal which expires in June.
But the former England international has been a popular face in the Goodison Park dressing room for many years and club officials are attracted to the possibility of hiring someone who knows the inner workings of the club.
