Moyes rules out Everton sales

David Moyes has ruled out the possibility of selling any of Everton's top stars this summer. The Toffees boss is not expected to have too much money to spend over the coming months as he looks to build on last season's fifth-placed finish. The Scot's job is set to be made even tougher with clubs around him ready to splash the cash in a bid to close the gap on the top four. But despite the lack of funds at Goodison Park Moyes is adamant that selling his big-name players in a bid to raise cash is not an option. Moyes has already seen defender Joleon Lescott linked with a move to rivals Manchester City while midfielder Tim Cahill's name has also been mentioned as a possible transfer target for other clubs. "People are always going to be linked with your good players, and they might see Everton as not having that much finance, but there's no way we'll be letting any of our players leave," he told Sportsweek. "The chairman's said that and I've made it clear. Everyone is under contract. The one thing we've got at Everton is stability with our players. "They are all under long-term contracts and we don't need the money. "I'd like money to spend, but I won't be giving up any of my players to raise that money." The former Preston boss also stated that he preferred to work at a club that was careful with their money rather than a team that spent big on players. "I feel the way we've done it where we've had to build and work with players and make them better, and juggle one or two a little bit, I think that gives you more pleasure than going out and buying the finished article," he added.
