Everton boss Moyes to strengthen squad in January

He told the club’s official website: “I think we’re short. We were short before we started and, strangely enough, we don’t have that many injuries.

“We’re not a club with nine or 10 injured players, so we’re actually just short of numbers in general.

“It’ll be difficult to get players in to improve the side, and January’s not the best time for shopping, but we might still need to do something.”
