Everton boss Moyes: Preston experience helping me in market

Everton boss Dave Moyes has revealed how working the transfer market while in charge of Preston has helped him unearth several lower league gems over the years.

Moyes has also proved adept at identifying lower league talent such as Phil Jagielka and Joleon Lescott and smoothing their transformation into top-flight players, something he puts down to success when manager at Deepdale.

"When I was managing at Preston our shopping tended to be in the Premier League reserve teams," the Scot said.

"The knowledge that I had from being at Preston helped me in that and there are a lot of good players out there and we all need opportunities."
