Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours

Yesterday was a pretty simple day in terms of Everton news, with two items taking all the headlines.

  • Everton goalie Jordan Pickford continued to be feted for his heroics in England’s Round of 16 win over Colombia in a historic shootout.
  • Just about every aspect of the player’s background was analyzed by media, but here’s a fun look at his social media presence. [RBM]
  • Pickford did his time playing in the non-Leagues before breaking through at Sunderland. [Yahoo Sports]
  • One of his first club managers claims he had him singled out for success early on. [Yorkshire Post]
  • Merseyside rival Jordan Henderson will be forever indebted to his fellow Mackem. [BT Sport]

The other main headline grabber was the transfer rumour linking Everton with Barcelona and Colombia’s World Cup star Yerry Mina.

  • Apparently the Blues have already made an offer for Mina, who had scored three goals in straight World Cup games. [Goal]
  • In other Everton news, youngster Fraser Hornby has signed a new three-year deal. [EFC]
