James McCarthy

Are Everton looking to replace Marouane Fellaini ahead of a potential move to Man Utd? According to the MailOnline, the Belgian midfielder is ready to hand in a transfer request to force through a deadline day move to Manchester, and Everton will be faced with a massive hole in the middle of their midfield if that goes through.

The Mail say that they are already making a move to bolster their midfield, whether that outgoing deal happens or not, as they have agreed a fee with Wigan for James McCarthy, and are currently locked in talks as to how the money is paid to the Championship club.

That deal would be worth 12.5million, after two lower bids were rejected, and McCarthy would join up with former manager Roberto Martinez, if the terms of payment can be hammered out. According to the report, Everton want to pay in smaller installments, but Wigan want a chunk of the money upfront.

According to The Telegraph, the Toffees opening offer came in to Wigan on Friday and was rejected and followed up with an improved bid of around 12 million, which Whelan rejected yesterday. But now it seems the clubs are closer on their valuations, and the next steps can be made to move the player to Merseyside.

Scottish side Hamilton would also be set for a windfall, as they included a 20% sell-on fee for any transfer when they sold the midfielder to Wigan in 2010.

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has also rejected what he calls an “insulting” 2.5 million bid from Premier League newcomers Crystal Palace for winger Callum McManaman,

Alan Pardew 2

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew offered his resignation in the wake of his side’s 3-2 defeat to Everton in the Premier League last night, according to reports.

The Magpies crashed to their third topflight loss in six games at Goodison Park on Monday night, after Romelu Lukaku scored either side of Ross Barkley’s strike to help sink the Toon.

And though Yohan Cabaye and Loic Remy scored in a late rally, the damage had already been done to the north East outfit in the first half.

Pardew is understood to have met with owner Mike Ashley after the game and offered to resign from his post, but was instead issued a vote of confidence and told his job is safe.

That comes despite the fact Newcastle are just two places above the relegation zone having conceded six goals in their last two Premier League games.

The Magpies next travel to Cardiff City at the weekend, followed by a home game against Liverpool and the Tyne and Wear derby against Sunderland.

They also take on Manchester City in the Capital One Cup at the end of the month, followed by crunch games against Chelsea and Tottenham.

Pardew signed a bumper contract extension at St James’ Park last September, tying him to the club until 2020.

Is it time for Alan Pardew to leave? Let us know in the comment section, below.
