Everton boss Roberto Martinez has hopes of adding to his squad in the coming days.

Martinez would not be drawn on reports linking him with a move for Manchester City's Gareth Barry, but will look to make additions before the deadline passes.

"We are also working hard to actively identify one or two more players who could come in and help us. It's not about names because that would be very disrespectful.

"I don't like it when I hear other managers talking about players who are registered for other clubs. I'd never do it.

"The squad is strong and experienced, but it's about finding the right character to fit in."
