Good news Everton fans! With this signing Phil Neville might not have to play defensive mid after all!

Hold on to your hats everyone; this has been a long time coming. All summer there has been an eerie silence around Goodison, but finally is seems as if they have pulled their collective fingers out.
Word is coming in that the lucky man being targeted by Davie Moyes to fill Lee Carsley’s role is Cameroon international Stephane M’Bia.

David Moyes is ready to make giant Cameroon midfielder Stephane M’Bia his first signing of the summer in a £4million deal from French side Rennes.

Everton boss Moyes watched the powerful 22-year-old in action at the end of last season and has turned to him for the ‘enforcer’ role after Lee Carsley left and Gilberto Silva opted to sign a three-year contract with Greeks Panathinaikos.

Gilberto told Everton he did not want to play against Arsenal after such a long spell under Arsene Wenger. (Mirror)

All this will come as a big relief as right now Phil Neville is first choice for the defensive midfield slot, a pant-wettingly scary thought for most Evertonians…
