David Moyes has claimed Everton’s squad needs a major rebuilding job following a campaign that has failed to live up to expectations.

The Merseysiders ended their horror run with a 3-0 final-day win over already relegated Norwich on Sunday to finish 11th in the Premier League table.

This came two days after the sacking of Roberto Martinez, whose three year spell in charge was ended on Thursday afternoon.

Everton have some of the most admired young players in the Premier League, including highly rated trio Ross Barkley, Romelu Lukaku and John Stones.

But Moyes, who managed Everton for 11 years before joining Manchester United in 2013, believes the current squad still requires considerable reinforcements.

Roberto Martinez’s sacking means Everton go into the summer in search for a new manager to work alongside billionaire investor Farhad Moshiri.

Moyes, who is still looking for an opportunity to return to football six months after leaving Real Sociedad, has not ruled out the possibility of a second spell at Goodison Park.

He told The Times: “Would I consider going back? I’ve said if I get an exciting challenge and something that makes me feel I could get my teeth into it then I would be really interested.

“When we took over we had 11 great and successful years but we also had to rebuild the club a little bit. I just think now the change has been made and Everton need to now go and do it again.

“If you give David Moyes an opportunity he tends to rebuild a club and he tends to get it going in the right direction and making sure that things are correct and I’m looking forward to getting the chance to do that again.”

In other Everton news, Frank de Boer is the favourite to succeed Martinez and has reportedly already held talks about the post with Goodison officials.
