Moyes hints at quiet summer

Everton manager David Moyes is not expecting to make any major signings in the summer, but is hopeful that several current members of his squad will pen new contracts.

The likes of Steven Pienaar and Jack Rodwell have been linked with moves away from Goodison Park, but Moyes hopes to see new deals agreed with the midfield duo.

He commented:"I don't think it will be a busy one – the biggest thing is we keep the players we have got at the club.

"It is for the board and chief executive to re-sign the players we have got and if they do I will be happy.

"Hopefully add one or two additions, then I'll be looking forward to next season."

"Sure I'll try and get some players in and that'll be at the lower end of the market to get those players in.

"I'd like to get a top striker in, but how much do they cost? That would be the problem."

"The continuity is why the club is where we are now, the club has kept the manager, the manager has got the players understanding what is required. We have good characters here.

"I don't need to sell before I buy and I'm not madly saying we need to buy."
