Rumors were flying of late, but it appears that the Aaron Lennon loan deal from Tottenham Hotspur to Everton is all but finished.
Aaron Lennon set to join Everton on loan to end of season. Talks concluded, agreement reached, just needs to sign #bbcdeadlineday #thfc #efc— David Ornstein (@bbcsport_david) February 2, 2015
There was a lot of talk of a straight swap with Everton that would send Lennon in exchange for Kevin Mirallas. As of now, that does not appear to be the case.
Lennon has made 17 appearances for Spurs this season, but only nine of those were in the Premier League. He has yet to score, but has managed two assists. Lennon is still fairly young, at 27, but has seemingly fallen out of favor with new Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino. There is a lot of upside to the winger, and Evertonians will hope that Lennon will work well with Blues' manager Roberto Martinez.
What do you think about the deal, if it goes through? Let us know below in the comments section.
