Also, looks like new signing Arnaut Danjuma, who was expected to be announced today, wants assurances that David Moyes is not taking the reins at the Toffees - the manager did not want him at West Ham apparently.

No sign of an announcement being made tonight, despite talks being held over Lampard's Everton future today...story with @JPercyTelegraph updated shortly with the latest #efc https://t.co/KZza7RXLNh— Matt Law (@Matt_Law_DT) January 22, 2023
“It’s still uncertain whether we will get the go-ahead to attend the next home game against Arsenal on February 4. No one could ever have envisaged things getting to this state where you are actually in physical danger...of course, fans can have their say and I can understand the frustrations, but some of the protests have gone over the top...the club is in turmoil. It needs unity with everyone working hard for the cause, supporters included. Surely no one wants to see scenes again where players have their cars kicked. It’s really disappointing when I’m advised not to attend a home game because of safety issues. We will now have to see what transpires in the next week or so before Arsenal arrive at Goodison,” says former Everton great Graeme Sharp. [Mirror]

“If the phone rings this afternoon and it’s Everton saying he [Simms] can come back, we then have to decide if we want to stop our other negotiations and bring him back, or [sign] Ellis and another one of the two or three we’re trying to do. If those other options fall in before we hear about Ellis, then there’s every chance we’re not going to pay x for Ellis to come and sit on our bench. That’s football, we have to do what is right by us and see what falls in place,” says Sunderland manager Tony Mowbray. [Sunderland Echo]
