Everton transfers: David Moyes insists he won't be selling any of the Toffees' big-name stars in the January transfer window
David Moyes has insisted Everton won’t sell any of their top players in the January transfer window despite the Toffees announcing a loss for the 2011/12 campaign.
The Merseyside outfit’s annual report showed that Everton recorded a net loss of £9.1m for the 2011-12 season – the previous term’s net loss was £3.7m.
Chelsea are reportedly interested in Everton’s Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini, while Manchester United have been linked with a bid for England international Leighton Baines.
Despite the deficit and an ever-increasing wage bill, the Everton manager does not plan to cash in on his big-name stars such as Baines or Fellaini this month.
“I don’t really study the figures because it’s not my department,” Moyes said.
“I just know that we sold players last year, but there’s not that kind of pressure this time.
“We only sold Jack Rodwell recently and last season we sold Mikel Arteta, so we have already raised some money.
“We have got a small amount of money I could use this month, but it’s only enough to get me a loan deal.
“Last January we had to sell to bring players in, but I’m not planning to sell anyone this time.”
Meanwhile, Moyes insisted he is in no hurry to sign a new deal at Everton, with his current contract set to expire in the summer.
“I’ve said I’ll be waiting until after January – probably later than that.
“I’m more than comfortable. It’s my choice and I do not want anything to get in the way of the team.
“We are playing well and I want us to focus on trying to hang in at the top of the Premier League and to have a good run in the FA Cup.”
