Villa are currently seeking a replacement for Martin O'Neill and Moyes is one name linked with the position alongside Ajax boss Martin Jol, USA coach Bob Bradley, Birmingham manager Alex McLeish, Sven-Goran Eriksson, Alan Curbishley, Jurgen Klinsmann and Gareth Southgate.

However, Moyes has now rejected suggestions he could be tempted by a move to Villa Park as he remains committed to his current side.

"I am loyal to Everton," he told talkSPORT. "I've always said that. It is a really good club and this year we have a really good team and we have a good chance of doing well."

McLeish is also highly unlikely to make a controversial switch from Villa's arch rivals, with reports saying he is set to commit to a new deal in the near future.
