Sam Allardyce is not ruling out any further incomings at Everton before the January transfer window closes on Wednesday.
“We’re not ruling anybody in or out as it’s impossible to do that,” said Allardyce, ahead of Everton’s home clash with Leicester on Wednesday.
“What I’m saying is that the window is open for everybody and somewhere out of the blue, which normally happens at this time, appears whether that’s a player for you to bring in or whether it’s a player you didn’t expect to go out but is acceptable to the football club for the right reasons.
“We’ve had a number of enquiries that are not suitable for us to allow the player to leave, nearly all of them on loan, none I believe is permanent.
“We haven’t accepted any deal from any loan deals we’ve had from other clubs.
“Until such time as the board tell me that ‘financially it’s acceptable what do you think?’ and then from a squad and playing point of view I say to them whether it’s in the best interest of the club and player to go on loan or whether he is better staying in the squad to try and break into the first team.
“But we have got a lot of players so moving some out on loan would be a possibility, but only if it’s right for the club.”
