“I have seen everything at Everton and in January or at the end of the season I will turn to a new club or a new league,” Marouane Fellaini added.

“In fact, people might say that Everton have lost good players but they have improved,” David Moyes said. “We sold Joleon Lescott, we sold Mikel Arteta and, though we have felt really down when we lost those players, we have had to pick ourselves up and find others. The club will always be bigger than any player or manager and the players we have brought in are showing that.”
Everton sits fourth place in the Premier League, which means they could acquire Champions League action next year. David Moyes understands that if he is unable to acquire Champions League action, more players from his squad will opt for a move away.
