Everton boss David Moyes says he won't have a lot to spend in January.
Despite the £10m sale of Jack Rodwell to Manchester City in August, there will not be enough money to strengthen when the transfer window reopens.
“I don’t think we’ll strengthen in January,” said the Toffees boss.
“I don’t think we’ll be looking to do any business – not because we wouldn’t want to but I just don’t think we will have the resources to properly do it in January.
“I think we are quite short after our initial 15 players and that was shown when we gave the fringe players a run against Leeds in the Capital One Cup.
“That is a concern for me and I just don’t know if we will have enough numbers if injuries take too much of a toll.”
