Good news on players cheers Moyes


Everton manager David Moyes admits even he has been lifted by the loan signing of Landon Donovan and news of teenager Ross Barkley's new long-term contract.

With discontent rising among some supporters about a perceived lack of movement in plans to sell the club the Scot was pleased to be able to talk about some good news for a change. United States international Donovan will return to Goodison Park in January for a second spell, while Barkley has agreed a four-and-a-half-year deal.

When Moyes was asked whether the news about Donovan and Barkley had put a spring in everyone's step he said: "It does in mine, it makes me feel good. I've always said making progress at a club is really important."
