Phil Jagielka wants to see David Moyes bringing in new faces this summer, insisting the squad needs to be strengthened.

Jagielka: "We haven’t got the biggest of squads so I don’t think there will be many out in the summer but we need some in to strengthen the squad.

“I don’t see the club going backwards though and that is why I was happy to sign.

“We hope this season is a blip, but last season wasn’t too good either.

"Maybe it is a couple of years of mediocrity and maybe we need to freshen squad and team and hopefully the gaffer buys some players in the summer and we can have a good season.

“The interest from Arsenal did not distract me. I am more than happy at Everton, everyone knows it has been a frustrating season.

“I don’t think there are many players who can say they have had the best seasons other than maybe Bainesy (Leighton Baines) and Seamus (Coleman).

“But I am looking forward to next season, we have a few more games to play to make sure we finish off strongly and in a decent league position.

“We just have to keep going and pick up as many points as possible, the fans probably enjoyed the game on Saturday but we have not won many this season in front of them and I’d like to finish the season here strongly and get some confidence.”
