Everton star Tim Cahill is excited by the young players coming through at the club.

The lack of serious transfer activity – young defender Eric Dier, on loan from Sporting Lisbon, is the only new face at the club so far – means Moyes is likely to dip into his pool of young players over the coming season.

Apostolos Vellios, Ross Barkley and Conor McAleny all featured in the USA.

Cahill told the Liverpool Echo: “The manager always brings the young players through.

“Tolos (Vellios) has all the right attributes. He showed the type of performance he can put in, the work-rate he can put in.

“Ross Barkley has come back to fitness, he is strong, he is sharp, he is fit. For me, I tip him to be a real up and coming player.

“Connor has impressed me just as much because he is a finisher.

“The other good thing is they are well-humbled kids. They really enjoy being around the first team, they have great attitudes.

“It has been fantastic for them to be a part of the squad in pre-season, because professionalism is something that they need for the future at a football club like this.”
