Toffees veteran considering immediate move into management.
Everton veteran Phil Neville wants to be considered for the position of manager next season, as the club looks for a replacement for the Manchester United-bound David Moyes, according to the Guardian.
The 36-year-old is expected to retire from playing this summer, as he has decided not to renew his contract with the Toffees, but he may now be set for a stay at Goodison Park as manager next season.
The likes of Roberto Martinez of Wigan and Cardiff City’s Malkay Mackay have been linked with the vacant post, but it is thought that Everton chairman Bill Kenwright may be tempted to promote from within the club, as Neville’s work under Moyes for the last eight years would help along the continuity of the club.
The former Manchester United defender has also been linked with the Stoke City job following Tony Pulis’ sacking, as well as a coaching role under David Moyes at Old Trafford.
However, his priority seems to be the Everton job, and he has reportedly held talks with Kenwright over this possibility.
Neville will also be working in a coaching capacity with the England Under-21s this summer.
