DAVID MOYES has started talks on a new five-year deal that will catapult him into the top six Premier League earners.

 

The Everton boss has just one season left on his current contract but chairman Bill Kenwright hopes to announce the fresh agreement over the next couple of weeks.

It will be a double-your-money package for popular boss Moyes, who will commit himself to the Merseyside club until 2013.

 

And it will end speculation that Moyes, 45, is unhappy with the limited funds available for him to spend in the transfer market.

And Sport of the World understands that West Ham are preparing to hijack a proposed switch to Wigan by tabling a £11m bid for the England striker.

 

As we revealed back in October of last year, Johnson, 27, is clearly destined for the Goodison Park exit door.

Wages

 

The frontman has not even renewed his executive box for the upcoming season.

 

And Latics boss Steve Bruce, who was in charge of the striker at Birmingham, seemed to be in pole position to land AJ after privately agreeing to stump up £10m and meet the player’s £50,000-a- week wages.

 

But West Ham manager Alan Curbishley will now enter the race after convincing the Upton Park board that £11m on Johnson would be money well spent.

 

Moyes is willing to let Johnson go — as long as he is given the cash to strengthen his squad.

 

The Scot has not had a great deal of success in the early stages of his player hunt.

 

He is still keen on Tottenham’s misfit striker Darren Bent but is baulking at the £12m asking price. And last week, he tried to intercept Arsenal midfielder Gilberto Silva but found the Brazilian had already committed himself to Greek side Panathinaikos.

 

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher remains a target but, with Red Devils boss Ferguson not forcing out the midfielder, Moyes believes the Scotland international will stay at Old Trafford.

 

Yet Moyes will renew his pursuit of new recruits in earnest once he has put pen to paper on his own deal.

 

Neither the manager — who has been at Goodison Park for six years since joining from Preston — nor the chairman expect any late hitches and the new contract should be rubber-stamped within the next fortnight.

Oh and finalised over the next 2 weeks, I am guessing post Stadium decision. Clearly transfer funds are linked to the move, why EFC are denying it when it is so obvious. Like the transfer targets on verge of signing, I bet no one signs BEFORE the stadium decision.
