Everton’s summer has been chronicled by two fan sites; Toffeeweb and Blue Kipper. While the Official Everton site has been glumly sitting on their hands, offering up the occasional chintzy article by Phil Neville in a vain attempt to slake the fans’ transfer bloodlust – the two fan sites seem to have the inside track on all Goodison movements.
Blue Kipper was the first to break the news that Keith Wyness, Everton’s CEO, was going to jump ship, and Toffeeweb brought us news of the “problems” surrounding the Andy Johnson deal, so when one of these sites chirrups in with some more transfer tidbits, you have to take notice. Today is Toffeeweb‘s turn, citing “Internet Whisperings” as their source:
An unnamed Ghanaian could be the next player in through the door on a free transfer according to rumour, with some speculating it’s Sammy Kuffour, the 31 year-old defender who is without a club after being released by AS Roma.
Another, more exciting prospect, of course, is long-time target Stephen Appiah. (Toffeeweb)
Obviously either of these two would be gratefully gobbled up by the Goodison faithful, but Appiah in particular – on a free – would be a great piece of bargain basement business.
