Everton boss Martinez big fan of Scottish talent

Everton boss Roberto Martinez admits a short spell with Motherwell has influenced him in the transfer market.

In recent seasons Martinez has signed James McCarthy, Shaun Maloney, James McArthur and Aiden McGeady, all of whom have played for Scottish clubs.

He said: "As a profile in terms of their work-rate, understanding of the game, their focus and desire, I love the Scottish player as a character in any dressing room in the Premier League.

"I have been following a lot of youngsters who are showing real potential and I think Scottish football can take advantage of using a lot of young players for the league."
