    Martinez: I have funds to strengthen in the January Transfer Window

    Roberto Martinez will look to strengthen in the January transfer window.

    The club were left in profit  after raising more than £30m from the  deadline-day sales of Marouane Fellaini and Victor Anichebe.

    And Martinez believes he will be  given access to the extra funds as he  aims to bring in more fresh faces in  the New Year amid fears Manchester  United could return with a renewed  bid for Leighton Baines.

    “We’re in the position where we’ve  got a bit of money to try to improve the  squad for the next window and we’re  going to do that from window to window,” said the Spaniard.

    “We have to because I’m sure next  time the question will be ‘who we are  going to lose now’, so improving the  squad goes without saying.

    “We have got a little bit of money  and will always carry on trying to  identify targets that can help the  group. That will never stop and it will  be the same in the window coming.”

    Martinez will use the coming  months to run the rule over his squad  before finalising any targets in January.

    “It would be daft from our point of  view not to try to help the team that  we have,” said the Goodison manager.

    “Of course we have a very  strong team but you always  need to be prepared to help  the players that we have and  use every window to our advantage.

    “Over the next three or four  months I’ll have a clear idea.  At the moment on paper we’re  very strong in every area but  football doesn’t work like that.

    “Players have moments of  form, injuries, certain partnerships that allow you to  have that information for the  next window.”
