Moyes: Young players will get chance at Everton
David Moyes admits the Premier League is a difficult place for up-and-coming footballers but he believes the club do their best.
The Toffees' academy has produced a number of players for the first team over the years and Moyes, sometimes out of necessity, has given youngsters opportunities to prove themselves.
Everton's latest highly-regarded prospect Ross Barkley has been loaned out to npower Championship club Sheffield Wednesday for a month in order to give him the chance of more regular football.
"It is tough to put young players in the first team because Premier League games are so valuable and even league positions where you finish are worth a lot of money," said the Moyes.
"And if I lost, the media wouldn't be 'It was great I played Ross Barkley', you'd be asking me about a defeat. I think that is part of the Premier League now, it makes it difficult.
"But I do think we have been one of the better clubs at introducing young players and trying to give them opportunities and we will continue to do so. Ross is ready to go play at a senior level, but not quite here yet."
