Everton defender Phil Jagielka is delighted with their early transfer market work.
After being caught late in past windows, Jagielka senses a difference this time around - especially after the captures of Steven Naismith and Steven Pienaar.
He said: “We always seem to have an air of confidence, especially after the finish we had. But it was important whether we were going to do business, be it ins or outs, that it’s done as soon as possible.
“We’ve seen with Tim (Cahill) going that it was nice for him it was done quick enough. Nasiy (Steven Naismith) has come in and he looks like he’s going to be a decent player for us. Hopefully we can get a couple of more in and start the season with a squad rather than having it clouding over us, and wondering ‘are we going to get him or lose him’.
“The club seem to have made a purposeful intent with the transfer market to get what we can in, obviously we haven’t got a lot of money but get what we can in and get everyone familiar with each other.”
