Everton forward Tim Cahill claims a lack of transfer activity at Goodison Park is no cause for alarm.
It has been a quiet summer on the blue half of Merseyside, with there few comings and goings of which to speak.
James Vaughan, who had been loaned out on a regular basis in recent years, has been moved on to Norwich, while promising centre-half Eric Dier has been drafted in on loan from Sporting Lisbon.
Other than that, David Moyes' senior squad remains pretty much the same as when the 2010/11 campaign came to a close.
Cahill insists that is no bad thing, with the Toffees having placed more emphasis on negotiating new deals with their top stars than they have on identifying fresh faces.
"We've tied some pretty important players to Everton for a long time," said the Australia international.
"We're trying to build something special. If the funds are there, they're there, and if they're not, we'll have to deal with it."
Cahill believes Everton supporters should take heart from the goings on at Goodison this summer, rather than be disappointed at a lack of arrivals.
He added: "I think for us as players, it's best that we focus on the good things.
"I'm focusing on us keeping our best players. I know a lot of the big clubs are struggling to keep their best players.
"As for players coming in, I try and stay focused on the football, but sometimes you can understand the fans' frustration.
"The main objective for us are the players that are part of the squad now, and do as best we can to make the fans happy."
