Everton boss Moyes tells Duffy to forget loan departure

Everton boss David Moyes has pulled Shane Duffy aside to assure him he's in his first team plans.

The Liverpool Echo says the Republic of Ireland U-21 international has been told he is right in the mix to challenge favoured pair Phil Jagielka and Sylvain Distin for a first-team place as the Toffees chase a top four finish and FA Cup glory.

Duffy had previously been fourth in line to start in central defence and Moyes had considered allowing him to go on loan to gather experience, but has been impressed with his development in recent months.
