Everton and Newcastle battle for giant £6m signing: He really isn’t that good!

Euro 2008 has brought many top-quality players to the attention of scouts and managers eager to improve their squads. However, this player didn’t seem all that impressive to me!

Everton and Newcastle are both interested in Holland midfielder Orlando Engelaar but German side Schalke are close to sealing a deal for the FC Twente player. Eduard Burleson, the 28-year-old’s agent said: ‘I know Everton are interested and that Newcastle could soon make a move’ (Times Online)

The giant midfielder was the big weak link in the Dutch side, the 6ft 6in midfielder really did look out of his depth in Marco Van Basten’s side and I really don’t see why Keegan and Moyes are considering such a move. Maybe his agent is delusional. Am I being too harsh or do Newcastle and Everton fans think him worthy of investing the reported £6m fee?
