Everton unconcerned over Celtic link for McFadden

Everton assistant boss Alan Irvine insists they're unconcerned over reports linking James McFadden with Celtic.

He told evertonTV: "If your players are doing well then other people will look at them and hope to sign them but we're not looking to sell any players, we've been patiently building the squad and we are not looking to sell players.

"There was speculation recently about Andrew Johnson and he signed a new contract, so that shows what the clubs intentions are as far as that's concerned.

"I believe there is a bit of speculation with Faddy now, but as I said with Andy, we have no plans to sell James McFadden.

"There will be people who look at the number of strikers we've got and say that perhaps we have too many but we haven't had too many so far this season and we hope that we will have them all to choose from. Sometimes we'll play with one striker and sometimes we'll play with two strikers, and it's up to the ones that are in possession at that time to perform well and to score the goals that will keep them in the team."
