Kenwright: I'll sell Everton to make sure Moyes stays

Bill Kenwright has insisted David Moyes is staying at Everton.
And the Goodison chairman has reiterated he is ready to sell the club to ensure that happens.
Moyes has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks, with Spurs putting him high on their list of potential candidates should Harry Redknapp take the England job.
Yet after 10 years in charge of the Blues, Kenwright believes his manager still has massive ambitions for Everton, and he explained he wants to match that ambition any way possible.
“Why wouldn’t other clubs want him? But I don't fear losing him, not at all. Never. Why? What do I think is the biggest club in the world? Everton," he insisted.
"I do believe he is our manager because he wants to be our manager and he gets what he can and what he wants out of this club.
“I think that is important to him. He is ambitious. I am hugely ambitious but I have got to be realistic and that is why I have to ask myself whether I can be the chairman for much longer.
“It is a huge club and I have to find the investment to take it forward. We love nights like the wins against Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham but we live in a game dominated by money.
“I know this club is revered throughout football for the way we try to do it but it is a huge job and it gets more and more difficult. The one thing he (Moyes) does know is he gets every single brass farthing available and he does know no-one takes any money out of this club.
“But at the end of the day I have to find a new owner.”
Kenwright is hoping he can have one more special day before he is forced to hand over the reigns at Goodison.
He believes his manager deserves to bring a trophy to the club after 10 years of sterling work which has turned Everton?s fortunes around.
“More than anything I want David Moyes to get that FA Cup so he can say I got you some silverware," he said.
“The one thing he has done for this club is he has made us all believe again and 10 years ago we had lost some of our belief.
“It has been 10 years of absolute friendship. We’ve had maybe two what you could call rows but they would last five minutes, words rather than rows maybe."
