Moyes demands assurances before committing to Everton deal

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright has assured manager Dave Moyes he will be backed in the summer market.

The Times says Kenwright is thought to have given Moyes assurances that the club will match his ambitions by making funds available for high-calibre players in the transfer market this summer.

Steve Sidwell, the £3million-rated Chelsea midfield player, and Michael Bradley, the Heerenveen midfield player who would cost about £4.5million, are targets, although Moyes has indicated that if the club are serious about challenging for a Champions League place they may have to break their £11.25million transfer record.
