Neville set for extended run in central defence

Phil Neville could be set to play at centre-half for some time as the Joleon Lescott saga continues to swirl around Everton.

The club captain made a winning start in midweek when he stepped into the role with his side chalking up a 4-0 victory against Sigma Olomouc in the Europa League play-off first leg.

Neville looks certain to retain that slot against Burnley at Turf Moor as speculation grows that Lescott is edging ever closer to a move to Manchester City.

Lescott was banished from the squad by David Moyes for a bad attitude after two bids were rejected, leaving the manager short of options in that area.

Moyes said: "Phil did a great job as centre half is not his position. He is a terrific pro. He may well have to do it again until the situation changes.

"There were one or two rocky moments but there are going to be until we get at least one centre half, maybe two, depending on what we need.''

Moyes is closing in on Argentina midfielder Ever Banega after he was granted a work permit.

The 21-year-old is expected to arrive on Merseyside shortly to complete a season-long loan deal from Valencia.

Moyes is looking to employ Banega in a similar role to Mikel Arteta, who is currently sidelined with a knee ligament injury.

Moyes said: "Our application for a work permit has been passed and hopefully we will get to see him in a few days.

"He has very good ability and is a little bit similar to Mikel Arteta in lots of ways in that he can retain the ball and pass it.

"Ever is on a year's loan. If he's good then we will keep him, if he's not we can always send him back.''

Moyes looks set to name the side that won in midweek thanks to two goals each from Jack Rodwell and Louis Saha.

Former Manchester United striker Saha has scored three goals in two games - he also found the target in the drubbing by Arsenal at the weekend.

Moyes believes Saha is already feeling the benefit of extra summer shifts.

"Louis did a lot of work in France during the holiday and had a good pre-season, '' said the Everton boss. "I don't think he missed a training session.

"He feels much better in himself and hopefully he is over his injuries as he is a fantastic talent. We want to get the best out of him.''

Moyes is still hurting by the 6-1 defeat by Arsenal but knows it will be tough against a Burnley side, managed by fellow Scot Owen Coyle, that defeat Manchester United in midweek.

Moyes added: "I feel a bit better after our result against the Czechs but it's one game and we've a bit more to go before we recover from the opening day defeat.

"Owen's got Burnley doing really well. They deserved to beat United because of their energy and that will give them great confidence.''
