Boss: We'll Keep Looking
Roberto Martinez pleased with youngsters and new recruits.
Roberto Martinez has not ruled out further adding to his Everton squad.
But the Everton boss says the form of two of Everton's young players means he isn't desperate to re-enter the transfer market.
Martinez explained that the performances of teenage duo Ross Barkley and John Stones during pre-season has given him unexpected extra options.
He said: "There is still a chance we could add to the squad. I have been very impressed with the youngsters, I must admit.
"Ross Barkley and John Stones really, really surprised me. I knew they had a fantastic future but what they have is a very special present and that excites me.
"I think Ross has got a bit of everything. He is a powerful player with an incredible talent.
"He is going to take a little bit of time but I don’t mind that enthusiasm and that eagerness to succeed.
"I have been very impressed with Ross and John Stones, another youngster in the dressing room. They have both been very impressive in pre-season and we need that."
The Goodison chief will still be keeping an eye out for any potential new additions who could complement his squad.
He added: "You always need to keep looking to try to help the players who are here. We are not looking for a specific number - if we don't bring anyone in, I will be happy.
"If we can find someone who can help the group we have though, we will never stop trying to do that because that is our job."
