The media might have been linking Everton with a big money move for Spartak Moscow's Aiden McGeady, but Roberto Martinez only has his eyes set on short term deals.
The 27-year-old former Celtic winger will be allowed to leave the Russian side next month after he rejected a new contract offer at Spartak and targeted a move to a Premier League club.
With Spartak Moscow willing to listen to offers, the Metro believed that Roberto Martinez would rekindle his interest.
However the Everton gaffer is merely interested in finding stop-gap solutions to cover the injury losses of Arouna Kone and Darron Gibson.
'I do feel that Arouna Kone and Darron Gibson are two players who were going to have big roles for us, So I will look if there are any options to bring in anyone in January, just to have that peace of mind and make the squad a little bit stronger.' Martinez told The Echo.
He continued: 'It could be the loan market.
'It is a short-term situation the one we are in because I'd love to see Darron and Arouna back on the pitch. A short-term solution would help in that respect.
'But overall I've been delighted with the way the lads have adapted.'
