Manchester United to miss out on signing Everton full-back

Published Add your comment

David Moyes' hopes of signing Seamus Coleman in the summer appear to have been dashed as the right-back has opened talks with Everton over the possibility of extending his stay at Goodison Park.

Coleman, who was signed by Moyes in January 2009 for a mere £60,000, still has four and a half years left on his current deal however both parties are keen on agreeing fresh terms.

Manchester United boss Moyes is said to be in the market for a new right-back as Rafael has failed to impressed the Scotsman so far this season.

Reports last week suggested Moyes had put the Brazilian defender up for sale due to his topsy turvy performances during the current campaign.

Moyes had hoped to raid Everton of Coleman's fellow full-back Leighton Baines, however Roberto Martinez managed to keep the England international at Goodison Park.

And Martinez is confident Coleman will follow Baines in rejecting Manchester United and committing his long-term future to the Toffees.
