Everton boss Roberto Martinez is happy to continue utilising the loan system.

The Toffees boss has made a number of short-term deals this season for players including Barcelona's Gerard Deulofeu and Chelsea's Romelu Lukaku.

He said: "When you bring a player on loan you never have the worry of whether you can keep them long-term.

"The loan system allows you to keep bringing in players who can make an impact in the short term and bridge those gaps. For clubs with finances like ours that is vital."
