Moyes: No cash left for more signings

Everton boss David Moyes said the cash strapped club are unlikely to sign any more new players before the end of the transfer window.
Speaking after Everton's 2-0 victory against new A-League franchise Melbourne Heart - the Blues second consecutive victory on their three-match pre-season tour of Australia - Moyes confirmed his transfer business is over.
He has brought in former Leeds striker Jermaine Beckford on a free, French youth international Magaye Gueye and Portugese striker Joao Silva.
"There's no cash to sign any more players for the club for the time being so it's unlikely we will be bringing in any more new faces before the new season starts in August," Moyes said.
"But I feel we've got enough firepower up-front now with Jermaine Beckford adding to the competition we have for places and also providing the back-up we needed after last season."
Moyes believes he now has a stronger squad that at any stage since his arrival at Goodison Park in 2002.
England youth international midfielder Jack Rodwell is another young player Moyes expects will lift Everton to new heights in the future.
"It is the strongest squad I've ever had and it's not a coincidence," Moyes explained.
"Young people in whatever field they are involved in should be given a chance and there are not enough homegrown players in the Premier League."
