Sly Sputs are reporting the following:

". understands Christian Atsu has agreed to join Everton on season-long loan. Everton have been leading the chase for the Ghana international after holding talks with the player earlier this month, but the deal stalled because the player could not be guaranteed regular first-team football. However, those problems have been ironed out and Atsu is set to become the latest new face at Goodison Park."

1.) Ssn are not reporting anything of the sort. On ssn Transfer (rumours) it says he has agreed to join WB or Everton.


2.) 08 Aug 2014 21:09:02
Yes they are and yes he has!

Kone traveling to Germany with squad, so he cannot be injured. Hopefully we see him for at least 45 minutes because we sure need as much up front as possible, with 1 more hopefully.

Travelling squad: Howard, Robles, Stones, Distin, Baines, Duffy, Jagielka, Alcaraz, Garbutt, Hibbert, Browning, Gibson, Besic, McCarthy, Barry, Osman, Barkley, Pienaar, Naismith, Mirallas, McGeady, McAleny, Hope, Long, Lukaku, Kone.

steviegee

1.) Hopefully Robles is on a one way ticket!


2.) Evil-minded Davey mate. Ha ha


3.) At least 45 minutes during this season?

Apparently representative of Barcelona is in London for talks with Everton over loan deal for Adama Traore. Only 18 but first team ready by all accounts. Be a good signing as he can play wings and is fast and skilful

steviegee

1.) This would be some coup,this guy is a superstar in the making.


2.) Go watch him in Youtube . very much in the Delafeu mould with the step overs, but very much bigger and stronger and faster


3.) The boy is like a freight train there is just no stoping him. Football's answer to Jonah Lomu; Grace, pace, skill and power! Get him in Bobby M


4.) The Barca player we are in talks with is Ibrahim Allefay.

G O'keefe has stated that the Atsu deal is back on and both parties are resuming negotiations. If they can both agree the terms then it could be completed by the end of the week

Everton have won the race to sign Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku for a club record £28.5m, according to Italian media.

Jose Mourinho sent the 21-year-old out on loan to the Toffeess last season where he scored 15 times in 31 appearances and will permanently dispense of him now Dider Drogba has returned to Stamford Bridge.

The move would be a coup for Everton manager Roberto Martinez, who appears to have shaken off competition from potential suitors including Real Madrid, German side Wolfsburg and Italian league champions Juventus for the Belgian international.

It seems obvious to me that Booby is slowly building a very useful young squad for the future, playing his style of football. Stanek, Galloway, Henen (hopefully - we cannot allow this one to escape), Garbutt, Stones, Duffey, Coleman, Besic, McCarthy, Atsu, Barkley, Lukaku and a few of the U-21s.

This can only be a good move and one for a long future of increasing success.

steviegee

1.) And long

We beat a Sheff Wed XI 4-1 and Lukaku & Mirallas played with Lukaku scoring 2 in a behind closed doors training match today

We've finally got him guys:

Muhamed Besic has signed a four-year deal with Everton FC for a fee ranging between €4-5 million.

According to Everton FC's official website, Muhamed Besic will travel with the Everton team to Bangkok, Thailand, where they will play a friendly match against Leicester City this Sunday. Besic will not take part in this match as he works with his post-World Cup fitness.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez will officially present Besic as an Everton player when the team returns to Liverpool next week.

Roberto Martinez: "The next few days will allow Mo to meet the players, but more importantly it is an opportunity for him to get into optimum condition ahead of the new season. I am looking forward to introducing him to the Everton fans when we come back but first I would like to thank Ferencváros for the way in which they have approached the negotiations. They have been very understanding at this point and we have enjoyed a good working relationship."

Muhamed Besic played two great seasons for Ferencvaros in the Hungarian league, where he was awarded the Player of the Season. The 21 year-old went on to play every minute in Bosnia-Herzegovina's 2014 World Cup campaign, where he was one of the nation's Top Performers.

Besic's main position is defensive midfield, but he can also be deployed anywhere in defense, notably center-back, the position he played for Ferencvaros.

An interesting tid bit: After the World Cup match between Bosnia and Argentina, Everton manager Roberto Martinez heavily praised Muhamed Besic on ESPN's post-game show, leading many fans in both Bosnia and in the Everton circle to predict Besic's eventual move to Everton weeks in advance.

The latest news coming from Holland and Moaninho is that Lukaku will decide his future and Everton are quietly confident of securing his signature. Guess it depends on what Moaninho says to him when he returns from holiday.

Plenty of rumours that Everton are confident that Lukaku will sign in the coming days. Besic is still ongoing but due to complications with what is owed to Hamburg it is taking time. Martinez has come out and said he wants one more MF and 3 strikers. make of this what you will but I hope some of this is true

There have only ever been 2 options for Lukaku, Man Utd and B Munich. Who his Agent has been talking to I don't know but it seems Chelsea were never in the running. But, who will pay £100 Mn for him?

Personally, I would swerve Dolberg, he is too slow. Skilful yes, but we need pace up top and throughout the team.

It's fine being able to offer large fees for transfers, paying wages for these type of players and persuading them to sign are two different things.

Oscar, there are strong rumours we have agreed a deal with Forster. So maybe this is why?

It seems the Belfodil deal may be off. Something came to light which Everton didn't like. Whether they are looking into it and it is on hold, or stopped, I don't know. This is from Belgian and Algerian ITKs.

Transfer Window Fume – Relative or not?

Whilst personally I am as disappointed as most people that we didn’t manage to achieve our chosen targets and am annoyed with the way the window panned out, I do feel we need to have some perspective on this issue because of all the moans and ridiculous accusations being thrown around.

So here goes: We had an agreement with Zenit for Witsel but for whatever reason Witsel turned us down because he preferred to move to Juventus. This was the players’ decision (and he got his comeuppance on the last day when Zenit pulled the plug on his move to Juve. ) . NOT OUR FAULT!
Ghezzal: we had an agreement with his club also and made him an offer their Chairman said was almost twenty times his current deal. Yet the player turned us down because he wanted to play in Europe. All credit to the player for putting football reasons before person greed, very rare in today’s market. NOT OUR FAULT!
Perez: Again we had agreement with Deportivo and the player and it looked like completing. Yet Arsenal who said they were not interested in the player a week before, suddenly matched our offer. The player then decided to choose Arsenal because he wanted European Football. NOT OUR FAULT!

Gabbiadini: This deal was always dependent upon Napoli finding a replacement and according to his Agent Napoli really didn’t want to sell him. Hence they deliberately procrastinated throughout. NOT OUR FAULT!

Brahimi: This is a crazy one because of what happened. Initially we had a deal with the Club agreed and Terms with the player agreed. Porto suddenly decided to move the goal posts at the eleventh hour and increased the price. So we met that new asking price and agreed a new fee of 42m Euros. Yet again as the deal was about to be concluded they pulled out and said the price was now 50m Euros. Checking Portuguese Media I found that this was something Porto had done before, so it was not a surprise to the media. I also discovered that many African players have multi-owners and this also complicates such deals; in this case a Sports Company who had part ownership pulled the deal and asked for more money. They deny this however. NOT OUR FAULT!

Sissoko: This is very disturbing one for me because it seems clear that he and his Agent used Everton to secure a deal to Spurs. We had everything agreed with Newcastle and the player, even had a Private Jet on the runway waiting for him to bring him in for a medical. He didn’t show up and Koeman couldn’t get hold of him on the phone because he had turned it off. If people knew a little more about how Agents (the money men) work then these types of shenanigans will come as no surprise. Personally, I believe Sissoko’s attitude throughout this has shown that we have dodged a bullet and he is not the type of player with the right attitude for our great Club. His reason, he wanted European football. NOT OUR FAULT!

Does knowing all this make me less disappointed? NO, it doesn’t. But, it does allow me to apportion the blame squarely where it needs to be; with Martinez for destroying our reputation. If Kenwright had sacked him at Christmas last season instead of allowing him to make the situation worse we may have been able to salvage something from the season and therefore have been in a better position today to attract the kind of talent we required and wanted.

So I say to all the people fuming and blaming the Board and whoever else at the Club, please reflect somewhat and recognise the type of players we have been targeting, the likes of which we would never have targeted before. We showed our ambition but have sadly been let down by past failures. We will recover from this and learn valuable lessons. What we need to do now is pull together and ensure that we are in a good position fighting for Europe come January and then we may be able to strengthen the squad with the quality players we need and deserve!

Finally, Enner Valencia: When he signed for West Ham in 2014 he took the PL by storm. He was fast and scored some great goals and was entertaining and was an exciting player. Until he was badly injured that is. So let us give this lad a chance because he may prove to be an astute signing! He cannot be any worse than Kone or Niasse can he?

That’s it, my thoughts….
