After Spurs, Fernandes next - Moyes

Published Add your comment

Everton manager David Moyes is closing in on Portugal midfielder Manuel Fernandes as he attempts to increase the competition in his table-topping side.

Defeating Tottenham 3-1 sent Everton top of the Premier League - for 24 hours at least - and it may be difficult for any newcomer to break into the team after their performance at White Hart Lane.

But Moyes, who wants to bolster his squad before the transfer window is shut, said: "That´s what I need, competition to keep those players on their toes. The players have asked for the competition, I´m hoping to get it, and I´m hoping to make it even stronger again if I can."
