David Moyes admits that he is open to leaving Everton to manage abroad, but insists that it is not his main ambition to do so.

Everton manager David Moyes has admitted that he is open to taking on a new challenge at a club abroad, but has insisted that it is not his main ambition.

The Scotsman has been linked with a summer move to Schalke 04 following his announcement that he will make a decision on his future at Goodison Park when the season comes to a close.

Despite his admiration for the Bundesliga, the 50-year-old has claimed that he would not feel like he has missed out if he never moves his role overseas.

"I've always said that I wouldn't have a problem managing abroad and would want that opportunity in time, but it's not my main ambition or something I feel has to be done," the Liverpool Echo quotes Moyes as saying.

"For a long time when I've been to see games in Germany I've been amazed by the atmosphere. People talk about the atmosphere in the Premier League but over there it's incredible."

Moyes has been in charge of the Merseyside outfit since 2002.
