Snowed in again today so thought I discuss the Everton Transfer rumors while were in the transfer period -
I saw this first in the Daily News but now this rumor has been dispersed to more reputable papers (not rumor creating Daily News). The Spurs are trying to bring our Captain Phil ('Pip') Neville to White Hart Lane. Liverpool Echo - Apparently Redknapp has been impressed with Pip on the 2 matches this season and is looking to bring in some experience (Guess that explains the Beckham loan wish). Shutting down Gareth Bale twice will get you noticed. While I love Pip's heart and leadership, a couple million pounds I could live with it.
But since I started writing this Fanpost Moyes has ruled out any possibility of Pip leaving (ESPN)
Of course the Spurs have long been linked to Pienaar and are rumored to be offering up to two million pounds (Goal Article). But there has also been a report that Chelsea are interested in Pienaar for up to 3 million pounds - Article. In full disclosure - this article is credited to the Daily News which has been known to not be the most accurate.
There are of course rumors about other players leaving like the Yak going to Leicester City which is possible since he is apparently Moyes 3rd preferred Striker. But it will likely be for way less than anything Everton wanted and nowhere near the 10 million paid for Yak.
Apparently Monaco is looking to get Saha but with him finally scoring in the last two matches that will unlikely happen.
We also recetly sign an 18-year midfielder Araz Abdullayev from Azerbaijan who will be coming to train but is waiting on a work permit before moving permanently. This has been our SOP recently. Buy under million for a youngster to work through the system but nothing with immediate impact.
Random Tidbits - Also our world-class left back Baines turned down Bayern Munich for a transfer, never used striker James Vaughn is still with Everton somehow after ending his loan with Crystal Palace.
