Toffee Bites

Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours

The World Cup has sadly come to a close, but that means we’re one step closer to Everton’s return, a Boxing Day matchup against Wolves. Thanks for following, reading, and supporting all of our World Cup coverage.

In case you missed what could be described as arguably the great World Cup match (or just football match) of all time, watch the highlights below as Lionel Messi finally confirms his claim to the throne of greatest footballer of all time.

ICYMI: Salomon Rondon has left the club. Best of luck in the future, Salomon! [EFC]

Rondon’s departure has now opened a door for talks of Everton’s desire for striking reinforcements, while Alex Iwobi nears closer to a new contract.

We’ve got fresh faces in and the squad is a lot stronger. I want to play as much as I can this season, get assists and maybe some goals as well. I’ve never had a full season of playing at Rangers or Everton so, if I can stay fit, I want to get as many minutes and starts as possible. I’m ambitious. I want to play at the top level. It’s every boy’s dream to play in the Champions League one day. Everyone wants to be involved in European football. And if I do well at Everton, I believe we can get up the table,” says Nathan Patterson. [Daily Record]
