Everton boss David Moyes says he is in favour of sharing a stadium with fierce rivals Liverpool.

Moyes guided the Toffees to seventh in the Premier League last season, one spot above the Reds, but believes the club must look at new ways to boost finances. However, while revealing a ground sharing arrangement would work for Everton, Moyes insists Liverpool would reject such a move.

"I'd take that because I think Everton need it probably more than Liverpool, although it's not in our culture over here to share stadiums," he said. "But it does make sense.

"You could redevelop the whole area around Stanley Park, so for us it would be worth it. Everton would say probably we would take it but Liverpool not so - and that is probably where it will end up."

Moyes has been tipped to replace Harry Redknapp as Tottenham manager, but confirmed Spurs have made no contact with him over the role as he prepares for next season.

"I'm Everton manager and I am planning for next season as that," Moyes told talkSPORT. "I'm out at the Euros talking to my players, looking at others, and I and the chairman [Bill Kenwright] will be trying to keep things rolling along.

"Bill has not hidden the fact he is trying to sell the club and get money in to invest. We just have to keep going, keep looking for players, like [Nikica] Jelavic at a decent price.

"At Everton, I think we could make a difference without too much money, we don't necessarily need £50 million-£60 million, but if someone did give me a wad of cash I'd be delighted."
