Everton manager David Moyes has no funds available in January to sign the striker that he believes his side desperately needs – so will therefore be scouring the loan market to strengthen his squad.
“We don’t have any cash to lay down plans,” said Moyes.
“I’d like to bring players in on loan. I’d like a centre-forward if possible.
“But anybody who sees any speculation linking me with anybody who is going to cost money might as well throw that aside.
“It can’t be true, we don’t have any cash.
“We are out there trying to bring in some loans if we possibly can and that is the situation.”
