David Moyes ends one season in eighth place on Sunday hoping his board give him the cash he feels he needs to make it into the top four next time around.

Tottenham have broken into the elite this season and many feel Everton have the potential to do it next season, as they did in 2005, although Moyes says he needs to bring in some younger players to keep the squad fresh and in good shape for the longer-term.

Speaking ahead of relegated Portsmouth’s visit to Goodison Park for the final game of the season, he told the Daily Mail: ‘I’ve got a real belief that we have got a good team and I’ll be saying to the board, “Come on, can you give me a little bit to take this team higher”.

‘Results prove since November that if Everton get it right we can come out of the woodwork and shock a few people. But to guarantee doing that consistently we need to make one or two additions.

‘If we don’t, we need to look and see if there’s another way of getting there. We’ve never really had the money. I think we’ve spent £5million net a year for eight years.

‘There are one or two players who are getting older but I still think the main group are a good age - Arteta, Jagielka, Pienaar, Baines are all mid-20s. The likes of Phil Neville and Tim Cahill are round about 30 so we don’t have loads of “old” players. But we do need to keep young ones coming in. It’s harder to do so, especially when your expectations are high.’
