Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours

As Marcel Brands and Marco Silva are starting to settle in and establish themselves, we’re going to start seeing more and more signs of how they plan to run the club. In an extended interview published last night, Brands showed some indications of how big a squad he wanted to work with, and how he planned to work with Silva.

  • The math is simple: Everton have 38 players, and Brands wants only 25-30. Some players are going to have to go. [RBM]
  • One of the key players from the starting lineup this season who is expected to leave is Morgan Schneiderlin. [RBM]
  • Ademola Lookman is in demand. RB Leipzig want him back permanently, while Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton are interested too. [Mirror]
  • Another Everton player expected to leave is Oumar Niasse, with Cardiff looking to bolster their squad after gaining promotion to the Premier League. [Guardian]
  • Take an inside look with a cool video of how Marco Silva’s first day at Everton went. [Everton FC]
  • Here’s another video in the ‘1000 and counting’ series, this time an iconic goal from a legendary player, Duncan Ferguson for the win against Manchester United. [Everton FC]
