Ronald Koeman insists now is not the time to discuss a contract extension at Everton.
The Blues boss has been linked with Barcelona in recent weeks and speculation continues to pitch him as a potential successor to Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.
Koeman has always dismissed talk of him leaving Everton but says talk of a new deal, less than 12 months into the three year contract he signed last summer, is premature.

Asked what his reaction would be if Everton approached him over a new deal, Koeman said: “Not now, no,” Koeman said.
“Yeah, OK, links, that always what happens, but I think you don’t sign a new contract in your first season if you have three seasons of contract.
“No, no, let’s wait and see what happens in the future.”
