David Moyes has revealed he is eyeing a number of potential loan signings for Everton during the January transfer window.
The 48-year-old’s side are currently in sixth after enjoying an impressive start to the Premier League campaign, including an opening day victory over Manchester United.
Moyes is not planning to spend big next month, but the Toffees boss is hopeful of landing a number of players to temporarily strengthen his squad.
“We may well go into the loan market and see if we can find anything in that area,” Moyes told Everton’s website.
“I think that would probably be the way we are looking.”
Everton face top-four rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Goodison Park on Sunday – and Moyes is expecting a tricky fixture against André Villas-Boas’ men.
“I think Tottenham have always been there or thereabouts,” Moyes added. “They’ve set their club up and their team up to try to be in Europe.
“They were great in the Champions League with Harry [Redknapp] a year or so ago and this year they’ve done well to qualify for the next stages of the Europa League.
“Tottenham you would always see as one of the clubs who will be competing at the top end of the league. To finish above Tottenham would give you a great chance to be in Europe, that’s for sure.
“But I think Tottenham are a good side with some really good players, so it will be a big challenge for us.”
