Everton No2 Steve Round admits they're keen to add to the squad before Friday's transfer deadline.

Round confirmed the Club's desire to add more recruits.

"We would very much like to, yes," he said at a press conference ahead of Wednesday's game against Leyton Orient.

"We are a couple short and a bit thin on the ground. That is the job for the manager and the chairman.

"It's not easy at this stage and if we do, great. If we don't then we are still very happy with the squad we have got and the team we are putting out."
