It's been pretty quiet with this being internationals week.

Vellios in the news, and it's not good.

Bit of a mixed bag with the Everton news today, we'll start off with a piece that goes a long way to explaining why Apostolos Vellios has not seen much playing time.

Vellios hurting his playing prospects by refusing to go out on loan.

While we always thought David Moyes was limiting his playing time, news has now broken that Vellios has refused to go out on loan to gain more playing time. That's a shame, as fans can see how players like Ross Barkley have benefited from stints at other clubs.

Up to 11 Evertonians could see action for their national sides

England have already booked their place in the World Cup, and Barkley could be handed starts in the friendlies against Chile and Germany to show Roy Hodgson what he's really made of.

While the international break is a good time for a break for the players, it only serves to heighten the suspense in the buildup to Roberto Martinez's first Merseyside derby.

Could Deulofeu start the derby?

Not as far-fetched an idea as it sounds. He possesses the guile and pace to beat his man and get deep, which could provide the incisiveness Everton have been missing the last few games.

Best medicine for derby fever? Get away!

Leighton Baines, meanwhile, has seen quite a few derbies and would rather not hear about it. Going away with England is for him the best way to stay away from all the chatter and hype.

Speaking of Baines, the January transfer window is fast-approaching and rumours of his movement are gathering volume, yet again.

Baines replacement lined up?

Swansea City left back Ben Davies is apparently the man Martinez has earmarked.

City in for Baines?

Could Manuel Pellegrini be planning to swoop in for the fifth Beatle as well?

We end with some news about a couple of Everton old boys making a name for themselves.

Tim Cahill remains a legend wherever he goes

No surprise that the New York Red Bulls fans have taken to our favourite Aussie as well.

David Weir to coach a MLS team?

Interesting news that Weir has thrown his hat into the MLS management ring - FC Dallas, Vancouver and Seattle possible teams?
