Koeman favourite for Everton job

Ronald Koeman has emerged as the favourite to be appointed the new manager of Everton.

The Toffees are looking for a new manager after parting company with Roberto Martinez last month and it has been widely reported that Koeman is their number one target.

The Dutchman is two years into the three-year contract he signed when he took over from Mauricio Pochettino in the summer of 2014 and had previously indicated his sire to remain at St Mary's.

Executive director of football Les Reed last week reported that negotiations over a new contract were progressing well but Everton's interest in the manager has cast doubt over his future at the club.

Koeman is understood to have been frustrated by Southampton's willingness to sell their best players - Morgan Schneiderlin, Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren and Calum Chambers have all left in the last two years - and, while the club has promised him funds to strengthen his squad, Everton have been boosted by the takeover of billionaire Farhad Moshiri, who is prepared to invest heavily in players.

His agent is due to hold talks with Everton officials over the vacant manager's position with the Dutchman now the favourite to take over at Goodison Park.
