Despite the ongoing speculation, Dutchman Koeman - who is less than 12 months into a three-year deal following his arrival from Premier League rivals Southampton - is not interested in renewing his contract at Goodison Park.

"Not now, no," Koeman responded when asked if he had been approached over a new deal.

"Yeah, OK, links, that's always what happens, but I think you don't sign a new contract in your first season if you have three seasons of contract.

"No, no, let's wait and see what happens in the future."
