Everton boss Roberto Martinez says he hopes to find a way to keep Gareth Barry beyond the season-long deadline-day loan deal.
Martinez said: "What we want is to find a way where Gareth can come and be a part of Everton and enjoy his football, and we can all enjoy his experience and his quality.
"After that, we will see if there is an opportunity to see him for many, many years to come - because I do believe Gareth has got a long-term future at the club."
I just want to tell you: THANK YOU Everton and all the Evertonian fans for all these last years. @everton

Liverpool have signed two defenders on transfer deadline day with French international Mamadou Sakho and Thiago Ilori joining the club.
The two signings have cost Brendan Rodgers' side, who are top of the league after three games, £25 million.
Sakho, who played for Paris Saint-Germain, told Liverpool's website: "I'm delighted to be here. I'd like to thank everyone for the welcome. I came here because the project that is in place at Liverpool interests me. I'm really looking forward to playing my first game."
