David Moyes pleaded with Everton supporters to be patient with new signings Marouane Fellaini and Segundo Castillo, after the midfielders were handed a baptism of fire on their debuts at Stoke.

Club record �15million signing from Standard Liege Fellaini and Castillo, on loan from Serbian side Red Star Belgrade, started Sunday's 3-2 win and Moyes felt they acquitted themselves well in the first half and expects them to improve.

He said: "The hardest thing was to try and get those players integrated, and I think after playing Stoke the two boys might wonder what they have come to England for. They will be thinking 'is it always like this?' But it takes time for players to settle, especially when they are coming in from another country and another culture."

Asked whether he planned to sign the new contract on offer to him at Goodison Park, Moyes said: "I hope there will be some more news on that in the next few days or so."
