It's no secret Everton are in dire need of some support for Tim Howard.
The American stopper has struggled for consistency this season, and Moyes is without a reliable backup to push him for selection.
Too often, Howard's understudy has been a goalkeeper in the winter of his career, declining in ability, and never a realistic option to dethrone him—something that needs to change.
Everton must bring in a young talent to nurture through. Someone who could play in the Europa League—should Everton qualify—and be viewed as an improving prospect who could quickly challenge for the starting gloves.
Many Evertonians would like that target to be Birmingham's Jack Butland, although competing for his signature is unrealistic at the moment. Should the likes of Marouane Fellaini move on, that may change.
Another player that meets this criteria is Huddersfield's Alex Smithies.
At just 22, he is far from the finished article in goalkeeping years, but has gained significant experience in the Championship and League One, racking up almost 150 appearances.
His pedigree has been recognised by England, who he's won caps for throughout his youth career, and he seems a prospect sure to reach the top of the game.
Unlikely to command an outrageous price-tag, Smithies is an option the Toffees should keep tabs on as they look to augment their goalkeeping reserves.
