Moyes Not Striking Out

Welcome, Marco!

Everything you need to know about the new boss here.

Manager David Moyes has dismissed claims that he is looking to bring a striker to Goodison Park before the start of the new season.

With Wayne Rooney doubtful for opening day clash with Arsenal and Duncan Ferguson suspended for the first three games, it leaves Moyes with a front two of Kevin Campbell and Tomasz Radzinski, plus Nick Chadwick in reserve.

It had been reported that the Blues Boss was not 100 per cent comfortable with that level of strength in depth and he was looking at signing a new striker temporarily or on a permanent basis in the coming weeks.

However, with Rooney making excellent progress in his bid for full fitness, Moyes has moved to counteract any unnecessary speculation.

"We're not looking to bring in a striker at the moment," he told evertonfc.com.

Moyes deliberately omitted Ferguson from his 19-man squad that travelled to Deepdale on Saturday, as he aimed to give Campbell, Radzinski and Chadwick as much match practice as possible.
