According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Ronald Koeman has been given assurances that Everton will not be a selling club if he joins.

Koeman, who is currently in charge of Southampton, has had to deal with a number of his key players leaving in recent times.

Southampton have been forced to sell many of their prized assets in recent seasons, and although they have coped and still managed to compete, Koeman has been left frustrated by the south coast side’s failure to hold on to their better players.

Everton could face a similar situation in the summer, as many of their prized assets are in demand.

John Stones, Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku have all been linked with moves away from Goodison Park, but the Toffees are said to be determined to keep hold of the trio.

Everton have promised Koeman that he will be under no pressure to sell, and they do not intend to be a selling club following the investment of Farhad Moshiri.

Koeman will also have £100 million to spend at Everton, as he looks to build his squad.
