Everton to free up £2m transfer fund – reports

Published Add your comment

Everton look set to finally free up some money to spend in the transfer market, with the club fielding interest for £2 million centre-half Joseph Yobo, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Toffees are the only club who are yet to make a single purchase this summer, though the club have signed Sporting Lisbon defender Eric Dier on loan.

Yobo spent last season on loan at Turkish side Fenerbahce, and the club reportedly wants to sign the 30-year-old on a permanent basis.


And according to reports, Everton have resumed talks with the side, and hope that by selling Yobo, Everton will be able to free up some cash to make at least one purchase before the transfer window closes.

The side are also facing the problem of trying to keep their talent, with Phil Jagielka fielding interest from Arsenal on a few occasions. And while Everton have targeted numerous players over the past two months, finding the cash to pay for those players has proven difficult.

But with Yobo being sold, the Toffees will be able to draw up a list of possible transfers to bolster their squad.
