Liverpool Man to Make Short Move to Everton: Anyone Bothered?

Would this move really cause any fans to break down in tears…I think not!

Jermaine Pennant leaves his hotel in central London

The Rumour

JERMAINE PENNANT is agonising over a dramatic switch across Stanley Park to join Liverpool’s arch-rivals Everton.

The winger’s Anfield contract runs out on July 1, making him availabe on a free transfer.

Goodison Park boss David Moyes is ready to snap him up but Pennant, 26, who was a £6.7million Liverpool signing in the summer of 2006, is concerned about the Kop fans’ reaction to such a controversial move.

A pal of the star admitted: “Jermaine wouldn’t want to do anything to upset the Liverpool fans who have always been good to him.”

The Analysis

Maybe I am misjudging the mood of Liverpool supporters but surely they won’t give a damn where Jermaine Pennant goes? Am I Wrong?

Clearly having a player run out his contract and therefore resulting in the club losing any financial gain they could make from his sale is a little irritating but given the player in question I hardly think the club would have made too much from such a sale anyway.

As for him moving across Stanley Park to join David Moyes’ at Everton, well I would say good luck to them as the former Arsenal man has been something of a headache at Anfield but could yet resurrect his career after it’s major three year stutter!

The Likelihood

Pennant to Everton: I think Moyes will decide against such a move due to the astronomical wages Jermaine is after!
