Everton manager David Moyes is adamant that rising midfield star Jack Rodwell will not be leaving Goodison Park this summer. The 19-year-old is a rumoured target for both Manchester United and Chelsea, but Moyes is confident that Rodwell will still be a Toffees player next season. He told the Daily Express: "Are we susceptible? Of course we are, because people look at us and think 'we can go to Everton and take their best players'. "But if they do, they know they are going to have to come with a very big cheque. "If they come here, they know it is going to be very expensive and our intention is not to let any of the players go. I expect them to be here next season. "As far as we are concerned, Jack will be here next season. He has a four-year deal and it is being renewed just now. "I feel he understands that he is being pushed in the right direction at Everton and he appreciates that he is at the right place."
