Martinez insists Everton won't sell stars

Everton boss Roberto Martinez insists his squad won't be broken up.

When asked if he would be prepared to sell any of his top players – notably left-back Leighton Baines and midfielder Ross Barkley – Martinez would not entertain the idea.

He said: “No. We were at that stage in the summer , but once Marouane Fellaini and Victor Anichebe left, that gave us the opportunity to reinvest.

“Now we are in a position where we need a bit of continuity and time to squeeze our potential as a team. That stability is very important for us.”
