Kenwright 'has people in mind' for Everton job

The 67-year-old believes a hard-working manager will be the best option to take over the Goodison Park hotseat from David Moyes, who will join Manchester United in July
Everton chairman Bill Kenwright has revealed he has an idea of who should succeed David Moyes.

The Toffees have been long-term admirers of Wigan manager Roberto Martinez, while Porto boss Vitor Pereira is also on the radar.

Gus Poyet, Malky McKay and Neil Lennon have also been linked with replacing Manchester United-bound Moyes, who will take over at Old Trafford on July 1.

And Kenwright says the names linked with the soon-to-be vacant post are accurate.

"I have got people in mind," Kenwright told The People.

"A lot of those mentioned are not too far away. Everton have got a type, it's a very hard-working industrial football club."

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan is set for talks with Martinez next week, but has claimed that Everton are not "big enough" for the Spaniard.

Meanwhile, Manchester City are considering the possibility of hiring Martinez as Manuel Pellegrini's assistant at the Etihad Stadium.
