Everton manager David Moyes believes he will be able to call on top scorer Ayegbeni Yakubu and defender Joseph Yobo until the start of the African Nations Cup.

The duo were on Tuesday named in a 31-man squad by Nigeria manager Berti Vogts and are due to report to a training camp in Malaga, which will run from January 4, but Moyes understands Yakubu and Yobo will be given leave to carry out domestic duties before the three-week competition begins on January 20.

He said: "I do not have the information yet but I believe Nigeria are going to let players come back right up to the start of the tournament."
