Former Everton striker, Graeme Sharp, claims David Moyes will decide his next move at the end of the season.
The Scot has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park after stalling on a new contract at the Toffees.
And Sharp, who won the First Division title twice with the Merseyside club, discussed the 49-year-old's future with the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.
"He’s been at Everton for just over ten years and has been fantastic for us," he said. "There's been a lot of speculation about his new contract, but as he quite rightly says, he will cross that bridge when he comes to it in the summer.
"He wants to concentrate between now and summer to get that first trophy on board, to get them in Europe.
"David is very strong minded and will probably want to sit down with the chairman and have some reassurances made of where the club is headed.
"I know the supporters will be unhappy at this moment in time but David will say he’s concentrating on the games in hand."
