Everton boss David Moyes is concerned that a lack of available funds could hinder his attempts to strengthen the squad. "I would like to think it will be a busy summer in the transfer market but I am worried it will not be," he said.
"I've had a look and have got an idea of what I would like to do, but I need to wait and see what finances are made available."
Moyes believes the failure to strengthen his squad early last summer hindered his side's progress at the start of the season.
"Someone told me the other day if the season had started in October we'd be in the Champions League places," added Moyes.
"Buy you don't. You start in August and you have to be ready."
