Moyes desperate for new signings

Everton manager David Moyes says he will do all he can to strengthen his squad before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Saturday’s 2-1 victory at Bolton took Everton into the fifth round of the FA Cup, and put them in good spirits ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League home encounter against West Brom. The Toffees go into that game lying fifth in the table, just three points off the top four.

Despite what has been an impressive season so far, Moyes finds himself trying to juggle one of the top flight’s smaller squads, and feels that he needs to add to it.

Asked if he would back himself to bring in a new face before the transfer window shut, Moyes replied: “Yes.”

“I will do everything I can to get someone in,” he told the Liverpool Echo. “I will tell the chairman what we need and hope we can do it together. I know that he gives me every penny. So if you don’t have it, you can’t give it.

“But if I have to have a bet on whether we will get someone in, then I would back myself to do it. I can’t tell you which position we are looking for, because sometimes in the January window, it’s a question of looking for a number of options and seeing who comes along. Sometimes, you don’t actually fill the position which is the highest priority, but get others in.”

Centre-back Phil Jagielka has echoed his manager’s belief that the squad needs adding to in order to maintain the club’s form.

“It’s tough on the squad to keep the momentum going, because we don’t have the largest amount of players,” he said. “We can do it, though, because we’ve proven we can do it before.

“We could do with at least one new face this week. But obviously, it’s out of our hands. It’s really whatever the club can do. If we can get the right people in to make this good squad stronger, then we’ll be delighted. But the manager knows we don’t just want to start adding random numbers to the squad.”

Moyes has made clear throughout the transfer window that he has no need or desire to sell any of his players, despite repeated speculation linking midfielder Marouane Fellaini with a move away from the club.

The manager is also adamant that he will not be letting Johnny Heitinga go, even though the defender has struggled to win a regular place in the side.

Heitinga, who came on as a substitute to score the winner at Bolton, has not started a game since the league victory at Newcastle on January 2.

“I can’t let Heitinga go because we are too short in central defence,” Moyes said. “We wouldn’t do that, unless it was something outrageous.”

Heitinga, for his part, has vowed to stay on at Goodison, telling the Liverpool Echo: “I’m working hard to get my place back in the team and I’m a fighter, so I’ll never give up.”
