Jo stuck on Toffees

Published Add your comment

Brazilian striker Jo is with Everton at their Scottish training camp ahead of a likely loan move being agreed with Manchester City.

Jo, who scored five goals in 11 games on loan at Everton last season but was cup-tied for the run to the FA Cup final, is expected to have a season-long loan to the Goodison Park club confirmed shortly.

Jo turned up at the club's Finch Farm training ground on Monday for medical tests and travelled to a four-day training camp later in the day with boss David Moyes' squad.

Everton will be at their team hotel near Edinburgh for four days and return to play a friendly at Bury on Friday.

Jo moved to Everton last season in the January transfer window, only three weeks after coming on as a second-half substitute for City in their FA Cup third-round home defeat by Nottingham Forest, an appearance that robbed him of the chance to figure at Wembley in May against Chelsea, when Everton lost 2-1.

Now, with City having an abundance of strikers, including Craig Bellamy, Roque Santa Cruz and Robinho - plus the anticipated arrival of Carlos Tevez - Jo will find few chances to figure in Mark Hughes' first team next season.

At the end of last season Moyes made it clear Everton could not afford to match the £18million City paid CSKA Moscow for Jo last summer, but another loan will suit all parties.
