Moyes doubles his money with new five-year deal at Goodison

David Moyes vowed to make European football a regular feature at Goodison Park on Tuesday after finally signing a double-your-money, five-year deal.

The Everton manager ended months of speculation about his future by agreeing a £65,000-a-week contract that will run for another four seasons after this one.

As he celebrated a bumper pay rise from £30,000 a week, he set his sights on establishing Everton among the Barclays Premier League elite, and said: 'I am privileged to be manager of this great club and I think there has been an improvement since I took over six years ago.

'The aim now is to continue that over the next five years or so. I want our ambition to be greater and our expectancy higher, on and off the pitch.

'I have enjoyed my time here so far and I'm looking forward to the next part.

'There is a consistency at the club that means players know what they are doing and so do the staff. I'm really excited about this and really pleased for everyone involved. I'm pleased for myself and my family, who were desperate to get this signed and secured. It's what I always wanted to do.'

Chairman Bill Kenwright commented: 'There have always been two people - David and myself - who remained confident the long-term future of the manager would eventually be secured. I'm very pleased that has now been done.'
