Everton chairman calm about lack of summer transfer action

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright is not getting carried away with the summer transfer window.

The Toffees lost manager David Moyes to Manchester United but Kenwright feels they do not need to make enormous changes to the playing list following the arrival of Roberto Martinez from Wigan Athletic.

"There is no concern at all, not in the slightest," said the chairman.

"He has been away and you will always find July 1 onwards - when the current contracts end - is when it will start.

"Liverpool have had a sale (Andy Carroll to West Ham) in the transfer market, have got some money in and are spending some money.

"We have two enquiries going on for two players and if he (Martinez) has any concern I haven't felt once ounce of it.

"He is back at the weekend raring to go."

He added: "He hasn't met the squad yet. It is difficult for me talking for Roberto but he thinks the squad is fantastic.

"He wants to hold on to it but he also wants to bring in two or three players in the positions where we need them.

"The first step is to get the players back and get to know them and bring in two or three."
