Everton Loan Recap: Youngsters settling in at Championship sides

How have Everton’s loan legion been doing? Everton added to the loan legion in the closing days of the January transfer window, making it a total of 20 players (!!) out on loan this season. We take a look at how the group did over the last weekend, with the players broken out into the youngsters who still have a future at the club, and the rest who pretty much don’t. The Youngsters Henry Onyekuru The Nigerian forward hasn’t been among the goals lately but has been playing regular minutes on the left side of Galatasaray’s forward three. He played the whole 90 minutes midweek in the...

Bayern join host of clubs watching Everton target fullback

There’s plenty of interest in Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka Crystal Palace right back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is attracting a lot of attention with the list of clubs rumoured to be interested in his service growing longer by the week. The Daily Mail are now reporting that Bayern Munich are the latest club to be added to the list, which only makes Everton’s task in signing the player that much harder. Apaprently the Eagles turned down a bid in the January transfer window from Manchester City, but Pep Guardiola is apparently still interested in the player. Manchester United and...

Gueye’s reaction over failed PSG transfer that of a consummate professional

Midfielder speaks for the first time since transfer window closed As the winter transfer window came to a close in the late hours of January, the majority of the Everton fanbase heaved a big sigh of relief as it appeared that Idrissa Gueye would stay with the Blues, at least until the summer when Paris St Germain may or may not return. Gana didn’t play in the first game of February apparently due to a minor injury, but has been back to his best since returning to the squad against Manchester City and Watford FC. With the Blues on an extended two week break now though, the Senegalese...

Belgian World Cup right back linked with Everton again.

Meunier’s name keeps getting mentioned in conjunction with Everton Everton appeared destined to lose Idrissa Gueye to Paris St. Germain during the January transfer window, but the Blues were able to keep hold of the midfielder despite two bids from the French side. Interestingly enough, one of the names mentioned during those negotiations was that of Thomas Meunier. The Belgian international has surprisingly shared the right back role this season with ageing veteran Dani Alves, but Meunier’s pedigree is indisputable. The Blues have seen Seamus Coleman return from a horrific double-leg...

Everton’s quiet January transfer window symbolises their new era of financial prudence

Stability is the byword as Marcel Brands continues his quiet revolution January transfer deadline day is always the ugly duckling of deadline days when compared to its summer equivalent. You’ve heard all the cliches now: it’s a difficult market to buy in, clubs who are active tend to be struggling and transfer fees are often inflated with a hint of panic in the air. All of those ring true, which makes Everton’s conservative approach to this month’s window all the more prudent. They may not have signed a single player, but that doesn’t mean the window wasn’t a success. Marcel...

Everton v Wolves Match Preview

The Toffees welcome Nuno Espirito Santo’s upwardly mobile side to Goodison Park An eventful week saw Everton scramble their way to a narrow victory at Huddersfield before overseeing a relatively quiet end to the January transfer window. After last week’s debacle at The Den, any sort of win was welcome at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday so I’m not going to grumble at a 1-0 victory. When a team is low on confidence and out of form they have to battle and scrap their way to results, which is what they did against the Terriers. Now, let’s not get carried away. Huddersfield are...

Silva provides injury update on Everton’s defensive crisis

Manager’s comments ahead of Wolves visit tomorrow Everton take on Wolverhampton Wanderers tomorrow in their first Premier League action since the January transfer window closed. All eyes were on Idrissa Gueye yesterday as the Blues fought off the advances of Paris St Germain during the month to keep the defensive midfielder, so it was no surprise that the Senegalese international was one of the main subjects during Marco Silva’s pre-match press conference today. “It’s good for us as a club and for me as a manager [to keep Gana]. When a club like PSG has a big interest in one of...

Everton Transfer Deadline Day: Preview

What to expect today, the last day of the January transfer window The rat race that is the January window is nearly over. While the summer window is one with careful big picture planning for the future, the winter iteration usually involves teams assessing how their season is going and deciding if the possible outcomes of that season are worth more expenditure. Everton are a good example of this, and their poor vein of form over the last month and a half will certainly impact what they do over the next couple of days. So, here are a few players linked to various moves and what Everton is...

How will Everton’s deadline day outgoings impact the club?

A total of five Blues players left the club on the final day of the January transfer window It was a fairly quiet transfer deadline day for Everton overall, with no incomings and only a few minor outgoings. The club failed to make a signing in January, but perhaps more crucially, manage to steer Idrissa Gueye clear of Paris Saint-Germain’s clutches, which seemed improbably only a couple of days ago. How will today’s departures impact both on Everton and the players themselves? Yannick Bolasie - joined Anderlecht on loan for rest of the season Where it leaves Everton - with another...

Everton Transfer Deadline Day Live | Gueye to stay, Martina & Bolasie out

Will the policy remain “one in, one out” on Deadline Day? 4:00pm BST / 11:00am EST Gueye to stay?! Paris Saint-Germain have given up hope of signing Idrissa Gana Gueye despite the midfielder submitting a formal transfer request. Everton have steadfastly refused to budge in their stance that Gueye is not for sale during this window and rejected bids of £21.5million and an improved offer of £26.2million for the 29-year-old. Gueye was desperate to secure the move but Everton have held firm despite pressure from PSG who are keen to add a defensive midfielder before they face Manchester...

Idrissa Gueye begs Everton for PSG transfer with letter to club officials

Things are about to get interesting According to a Sky Sports report, Idrissa Gueye has sent a letter to club officials asking to be transferred to Paris St. Germain, though he has not filed an official transfer request. This is bad. (I know, just the sort of brilliant insight you come here for.) In the midst of a terrible run of form and with very little time left in the transfer window, Everton is looking at going without their most consistent midfield performer. There are those who do not rate Gana’s performances, but frankly his numbers are so good that I just cannot even be bothered...
