The 35-year-old skipper, who is contracted to Everton until 2013, has been linked with a role on Hodgson's staff since the West Brom boss took charge of the Three Lions on Tuesday.
Earlier this year, Neville helped out with England's Under-21 side ahead of a Euro 2013 qualifing game against Belgium.
But Moyes said: ?I've always thought in time Phil would get involved in coaching. But I think Phil still sees himself as a player and I think Phil has played as well as anyone at Everton this year.
?Like us all he had a sticky start, but whether it be in midfield or full back he has always been consistent and reliable. At the moment he wants to play. He is such a good guy and knowledgeable and understands what it takes for players to win.
?If you go about your business as he does then you will be very well respected. From players, managers and coaches alike. And supporters.?

I actually thought he was nailed-on to join the coaching staff here when he packed in, or would go player/coach or something.

Thanks for the effort Pip but please pack your bags and move on (or at least off our wage bill).

What's the matter with Duffy? He's solid in the CB Defence role, this doesn't give a great message to younger hopefuls or the fans... why can't these people see it! I can only assume it doesn't matter what the fans think...

If Moyes does not get rid of Neville and Cahill in the summer then he is shooting himself in the foot.
The 100000 pr week can be used on REAL quality that we can find on a free, like Hoilett.
Or Olic from Bayern.
It is crystal clear that Moyes is forced to slash his wage bill this summer before he can get new players.
Problem is Moyes will want to keep both Cahill and Neville until they are 38 or more.
This squad is stale without Pienaar and Drenthe who is only here on loan, we must face the facts that Moyes needs to take drastic action during the summer if we are to have a chance in getting to Europe again!

Hi is talented no doubt but it's clear he's an idiot and far from a model professional - i.e. a player that we (and probably any) club can do well without. We tried him out but it didn't work so lets leave it at that, (he has not actually played for us for a few games now).
Much as I want Moyes to go, I'm not going to blame him for Drenthe being a knob.

I think his wife may be interested. ;-)

He screwed up big time, and since then he's the quick stop fall guy for any venting as most players have put in their shift since January. Drenthe, despite some over zealous belief that he's a defensive catastrophe, has been one of the top players in our season and if he's considered as a player for next season by Moyes, then Bill needs to move heaven and earth.

At best he's a piss-taking cretin who, on occasions, showed a degree of talent. The rest of the time he took our money, and the piss, out of both fans and the club. I've said before he should be left to swagger about with his gangsta entourage and never darken our towels again. I have a mental image of him looking like a mini James Brown, complete with built up shoes and cape, walking through the Shankly Gates, with Shankly's statue spinning at several thousand revs a minute...
