Moyes staying with Everton

7:05 pm on 15 October 2008

Everton manager David Moyes has committed himself to the English football club until 2013 after signing a new five-year contract.

The 45-year-old Scot has been Everton's manager since March 2002.

Moyes is behind only Manchester United's Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger of Arsenal as the longest-serving manager of those working in the Premier League.

His decision to sign comes despite Everton making a poor start to the season.... they are 15th in the Premier League and have gone six matches without a win in any competition.

They are without a home win and were eliminated from the UEFA Cup by Belgian club Standard Liege before the group phase.
