Yes, Everton fans, the club’s official website has broken their hermit-like silence to announce their first transfer of the summer!
But Evertonians who have been waiting months for some fresh blood, might be a tad disappointed. After setting his heights somewhere in the stars, Moyes has been forced to look a little closer to the gutter.
Everton have today confirmed they are on the verge of their first signing of the summer after David Moyes agreed a deal to recruit Denmark international Lars Christian Jacobsen on a free transfer.
The news came on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon following discussions with Blues officials and the 28-year-old’s advisers. (Evertonfc.com)
Lars Jacobsen is Denmark’s first-choice right back and has Champions League experience – but he is also 28 and a free transfer. Oh, and back to that little matter of being a right back, shouldn’t defensive midfield – where Phil Jagielka and 17-year-old Jack Rodwell have been moonlighting – be the priority?
