Moyes: No pressure to sell

David Moyes says he is not under pressure to sell his star

players at Everton this month despite the club announcing more

losses.

The Merseyside club revealed earlier this week it made a net

loss of ?9.1million in the 2011-12 season, compared with a loss of

?5.4m a year earlier.

Speculation has surfaced they could offload key players such as

Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines in this month’s transfer

window, with both thought to be attracting interest from

elsewhere.

But manager Moyes insists he does not intend to let any of his

players go, while he says bringing a new face to Goodison Park on

loan is a possibility.

He said: “I don’t really study the figures because it’s not my

department. 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.”

Future

Moyes is yet to enter talks over his own future at the club,

with his deal set to expire in the summer, but the manager

maintains he is in no hurry.

He said: “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.”
