David Moyes: Says he is not under pressure to sell players at Everton

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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
