Martinez: Youngsters contracts show Blue ambition

Roberto Martinez Everton managerEverton boss Roberto Martinez says that the signings of key young players over the summer to keep them at the club shows the ambition at Goodison Park.

Ross Barkley, Seamus Coleman, and John Stones have all penned new deals, and the manager says that it can often be more satisfying to keep a player at your club than bring in a new one.

“Handing those players new contracts shows we have ambition, and it is something rare to have Barkley, who knows his best environment and he wanted to stay at Everton and carry on developing here,” Martinez told Sky Sports on Wednesday.

“Sometimes to keep a player is more satisfying than signing one.

“It allows you to have continuity to face all the demands of the season with a strong backbone.”
