David Moyes has said that he would not do anything to "jeopardise" Everton, despite being uncertain of his future at the club.
The Scot, who has been the Toffees' manager for 11 years, is out of contract at the end of the current campaign.
Moyes told reporters: "Being at Everton is something I would be really happy with. But we have been talking for a long time now, three or four months and everyone nudges along a little bit further every time we speak. As I have said, we will conclude that at the end of the season.
"What I am trying to do is make sure I give Everton the best chance of going forward. I wouldn't want it any other way. I would never do anything, in any way, to jeopardise Everton or the football club.
"We are well aware of where we are at this moment in time. I have always said that where we finish, what we do at the end of the season, that will be a better time for us to make a decision than just now. It is a great job, Everton. It really is."
