Everton manager David Moyes insists he wants to keep Tomasz Radzinski at Goodison Park next season after the club rejected a £1m offer from Fulham.

Moyes has said the Merseyside outfit are even keen to take a financial hit on the Canadian international should he refuse to sign a proposed contract extension this summer – with his current deal with the Toffees due to expire at the end of next season. The Scot has made clear to the Everton hierarchy that the versatile forward remains a key part of his plans to take Everton forward.

He said:

“Fulham have been in contact but Tomasz has one year left on his contract and we could let that wind down. I have talked to him and have offered a new two-year contract. Hopefully he will be with us next season. He is a player I want to keep and I have no real intentions of letting him go.

He is still under contract with us next season so he will stay until it gets to a stage where I feel we cannot take it any further. We would probably be tempted to keep him for the final year if he didn’t accept the two years and I think that is realistic. Things could change, but that’s the offer as it is at the present. We have offered him a two-year contract and we think that is a realistic situation. Two years is not a bad contract at all.”
