Losing Phil Jagielka is a massive blow to Everton. He is expected to be out for six weeks after getting medial ligament in the disaster of a defeat from Bolton. He has been a rock for us and we will miss his presence on the pitch
It may even alter David Moyes search in the transfer window
Moyesy said: "We are down to two centre-halves so it is going to make it difficult to cope for that time with two central defenders. We know we don't have great finances so we know it will be a problem to do that.
"We'd like to add to one or two positions and with injury to Jagielka it leaves us short at centre-half.
"We are looking to try to do something but it will more than likely be in the loan market - but if we see anything out there that we think is right for us we will obviously try to get it.
"It is never an easy time to get players in but we will try."
"Losing Jagielka is an incredibly big thing for us because the one thing about the team at the moment is they have been very strong defensively in the main. Whether it has been Jagielka with Sylvain or John Heitinga that has worked really well for us.
"To lose him is a massive blow to us because he is an integral part of the defence and very important to us.
"He has speed, commitment, is a little bit of leader and has great recovery defending.
"Even the other night he got injured recovering to get a ball he had no right to get to.
"Overall we will miss that athleticism and speed he offers and you have to remember he is one of the top centre-halves in England."
