To compound the situation, not a single signing was made during the January transfer window - while Anthony Gordon was sold to Newcastle United.

Everton have been linked with former Real Madrid playmaker Isco, who is out of contract after leaving Sevilla. But Dyche has ruled that one out.

Asked if a free agent would have been brought in by now had the Blues been interested, Dyche replied: “I’d have thought so.”
