Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
Where do you expect Everton to finish in the table come season’s end? [RBM]
“These few weeks to finish off the season are going to be difficult with intense games coming one after the other. I hope, not just for me but for the entire squad, that we’ll be ready for these games, as they are very important for us. We have a manager who is a proven winner and has this desire to win and I believe we are being guided very well by the right person,” says Bernard. [EFC]
The defender will be 36 in September - is this the right move for Everton to be making?
“Everton was such a big club in my career, one which I could never forget, I keep very good memories of this club. It gives a family treatment to all of the players, that is something that really makes you feel good. I can never forget my injury period and how the club and the fans supported me for 18 months to get me back to my best level,” says Arouna Koné. [Obstructed View]

“I’m out of contract with Everton this Summer. Once everything is wrapped up football wise, I’ll have ongoing talks with my representative, my agent. We’ll put something together and see what options I do have. I’ll see what clubs are interested, see what Ipswich are saying. Right now, it’s early days so I don’t really know what my future holds,” says Luke Garbutt. [ITFC]
