Boss?S Bargain Hunt

David Moyes is ready to search for new talent in the Championship but has warned clubs he is not prepared to pay over-inflated prices.

Tim Cahill was one of the success stories of the Premiership last season after Moyes took a chance, poaching him for £1.5 million from Millwall.

The Australian quickly transformed himself into a top-flight star leaving Moyes not adverse to returning for a similar style bargain.

But the Blues Boss feels that clubs are pricing their players out of a potential move to the Premiership in an attempt to take advantage and boost their coffers.

He told evertonfc.com: "We picked up Tim Cahill from Milllwall in the Championship and he has been a tremendous acquisition.

"We are still looking in that division, but you find that the good ones are all being priced at £4million, and you don't take a punt on a player for that sort of money.

"For that money you want someone who has been there and done it. We paid £1.5m for Tim, and everybody would look at that as an acceptable risk.

"Paying £4million for Championship players is not the market we would be going into."
