Everton to target Celtic boss Lennon if Moyes moves on

Celtic manager Neil Lennon will be offered the chance to replace David Moyes at Everton if the Scot leaves Goodison Park at the end of the season, according to the Daily Mirror.

Moyes’ Everton contract expires this summer and he has not yet held talks on signing a new one, with negotiations on hold until after the final game of the campaign in May. Moyes has said that his future may depend on Everton’s league performance – specifically if the Toffees qualify for Europe this season.

Everton are currently sixth in the table, two points behind fifth-place Arsenal and four adrift of Tottenham Hotspur, in fourth. Spurs are also Everton’s weekend opponents, while Moyes’ side still have to play Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge – on the last day of the season – and face a trip to Anfield to play Liverpool in the Merseyside derby.

The Mirror adds that the priority of the Everton board is to tie down Moyes to a new contract but Lennon is regarded as the preferred option should the long-serving boss leave. Moyes was appointed from Preston North End in 2002, replacing Walter Smith.
