Cape Town - Everton captain Phil Jagielka admits he's worried about a potential player exodus in the upcoming transfer window following a disappointing season.

The departure of manager Roberto Martinez has left the Toffees skipper worried that star players will be looking elsewhere, and that the incoming coach will want to delve into the transfer market and shake up the current squad.

"We have got a few players who are coming out of contract, players who have had rumours throughout the season about moves and things, so not only is the staff going to change the squad going to change massively as well," he told the club's official website.

"I am sure coming back for pre-season there will be a lot of things different, but the main is Everton football club moves forward and keeps progressing.

"I am sure that will be the case. There is going to be a lot of change in the playing squad.

"I am not sure the squad is going to be big enough for the start of next season with the people who are leaving. It is a case of them deciding what sort of squad and formula they want to go for both on the pitch and off the pitch. That will determine what manager they want.

"I am not sure exactly what will go on, but there could be double figures leaving which is a lot. We are not talking about young lads either. It is going to be a big change of personnel and that will play a big part in who will get the chance to manage the club."
