Over recent seasons, financial difficulties on Merseyside have made it so that Everton are not usually very busy in the transfer windows.
In fact, manager David Moyes usually loathes these periods as they leave his more valuable players vulnerable to bids from wealthier clubs. It is what has seen important components of the team such as Wayne Rooney, Joleon Lescott and Mikel Arteta, among others, jump ship for the more elite or financially powerful in the Premier League throughout the Scotsmen's tenure
However, beginning with the January window that permanently brought Darron Gibson and Nikica Jelavic to the club, Moyes has been particularly active in the bargain market this year.
As Everton continue to fight for their place in the EPL Top Four and a shot at qualifying for the UEFA Champion's League, these are the new additions to the squad and how they have been fairing so far in the 2012-13 season.
