The exhausting search is over for Bill Kenwright.

For the best part of a decade, the successful theatre and film producer has been preparing for his final scene. It is questionable whether his exit will be cheered/jeered by what has become a split audience.

It was reported last week that the Everton chairman had sold 49.9% of shares to Farhad Moshiri. The Iranian billionaire, who previously owned 15% of shares at Arsenal, is believed to have coughed up in the region of £85 million for a stake in his new club.

Currently positioned 11th in the Premier League, in what has been a largely underwhelming season for fans, Everton have welcomed this news. However, with changes at the top it is more than possible that alterations will trickle down onto the pitch. Roberto Martinez’s managerial position has come under threat following a series of frustrating performances.

Upon the announcement, Martinez revealed his excitement for the future of the club: "Farhad Moshiri will bring us a different dimension. It is a big moment in the club's history with a new investor coming in.

"The vision Moshiri is sharing will take Everton to the next level - and every single department will be assessed."

Although Toffee fans can be forgiven for predicting a brighter future following an injection of wealth given today's modern football market, Martinez and his players are unlikely to embrace such a change.

What’s more, key squad members John Stones, Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku are expected to draw attention from bigger suitors in this summers transfer window.

It will be a test for Martinez to keep hold of his best assets so he can build on an already promising side with the abundance of riches Moshiri is expected to bring in. If he can overcome this challenge, and exploit the new market of players that will be allegedly on offer, he will in turn, win over doubters, for the time being anyway.
