Goodison Park may not welcome Dutch international.
Everton’s £8.6million purchase of Dutch international midfielder Leroy Fer from FC Twente is close to collapse after talks broke down on Tuesday evening.
The signing of Fer was announced on Monday with the 23-year-old midfield enforcer, known as “The Bouncer” due to his physical strength, only needed to complete negotiations over personal terms and pass a medical on Merseyside.

But it is understood that Everton were not completely happy with the results of the medical and returned to renegotiate the deal with Dutch Eredivisie side FC Twente to a smaller initial fee and a greater chunk based on appearances and as a result the deal now hangs in the balance.
FC Twente chairman Joop Munsterman said: “Yesterday Everton claimed to have reached an agreement with FC Twente. Today they started negotiations over again. During the day they came up with additional conditions about the payment terms and also the transfer fee. We don’t deal with that. Then there won’t be a transfer.”
