It's one of the worst kept secrets in English football that Everton are one of the most financially stable clubs. With debt levels of around the £45m mark, chairman Bill Kenwright has invested wisely in the club alongside outgoing manager David Moyes. The club has regularly invested in youth players rather than spending big money, with the likes of Wayne Rooney having progressed from the Everton academy and being sold for huge amounts.
The club finished above local rivals Liverpool for the second successive season and players such as Leighton Baines, Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jagielka will be vital to their future success - if they can manage to hold on to them of course.
