Roberto Martinez "happy" to stick with current Everton squad

Everton manager Roberto Martinez suggests that he could end his summer spending after admitting that he is "happy" with the crop of players that he has.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has suggested that his summer spending could be over by claiming that he is "happy" with his current squad.

The Merseyside outfit have added Muhamed Besic, Brendan Galloway, Gareth Barry and Christian Atsu to their ranks, as well as £28m striker Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea.

While Martinez has hinted that he would be content to keep his squad as it is, reports have circulated claiming that the Toffees are interested in former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o.

"There's going to be many [rumours] because the window is still open," Martinez said in this morning's press conference. "We're focused internally on the players we have.

"We've got two big games now and they will help tell us if we need anything, but I'm happy with the players we have."

Everton, who will take on Arsenal and Chelsea in their next two matches, will be without Ross Barkley for up to five months after he suffered knee ligament damage in training.
