Deadline Day: Tom Cleverley arrives at Goodison

| 01.08.2014

Tom Cleverly has arrived at Goodison Park with a view to thrashing out a deadline day deal.

Aston Villa cooled their interest after the Manchester United man demanded £80,000 per week and interest from Valencia has also waned after the  player indicated that Goodison Park would be his preferred destination.

After shelling out £28m on Romelu Lukaku Everton will struggle to stump up a transfer fee so the Toffees are hoping that Cleverley digs his heels in so that a loan move can be struck.

Should the 25-year-old impress on Merseyside a permanent deal could then be agreed if Everton have balanced their books but a return to United looks unlikely regardless.

Roberto Martinez is keen to add competition for places in midfield, especially with Ross Barkley sidelined and following his side’s 6-3 capitulation against Chelsea.

Everton return from the international break with a trip to the Hawthorns and the Blues are priced as 10/11 favourites to win.

The Baggies, who were hammered 3-0 at Swansea last time out, can be backed at 3/1 with the draw available at 12/5.
