Everton Line Up Move to Sign Former Sunderland Keeper Craig Gordon

Toffees set to bring in Scottish international.

Sky Sports understands Everton are lining up a move for former Sunderland goalkeeper Craig Gordon.

Scotland international Gordon is available on a free transfer after leaving Sunderland in the summer.

Everton boss David Moyes admitted after Saturday’s draw with Norwich that a lack of competition was harming Tim Howard’s form at Goodison Park and he is now thought to be ready to bring in Gordon to add to his goalkeeping options.

Sunderland paid £9m to bring Craig Gordon from Hearts back in the summer of 2007 and the Scottish international was lauded as one of the best custodians in British football at the time but the Edinburgh born keeper is now without a club and would presumably jump at the chance of a move to Goodison Park.

At 29 years of age Gordon still has a lot left in the tank in goalkeeping terms and he is clearly too good a goalie to be without a club and David Moyes’s desire to bring in an adequate player to keep Tim Howard on his toes may well resurrect the former Black Cats star’s career.

Gordon has made just one Premier League appearance since February 2011 but clearly has the ability to make an impact at Everton.
