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,

Wigan Athletic have signed Nick Powell on a season-long loan from Manchester United, according to the BBC.

Wigan owner Dave Whelan confirmed the deal, saying:

“We obviously had Tom Cleverley on loan and I think United were happy with the job we did with him, so it’s good news that we’ve got the lad.

The 19-year-old joined United from Crewe Alexandra in 2012 but made just two Premier League appearances for the club, and saw two more appearances in the Capital One Cup and Champions League later in the campaign.

Powell becomes the Latic’s eleventh summer arrival in what has been a busy transfer period for new manager Owen Coyle.

The same however cannot be said of United, who are still awaiting their first big signing as the transfer window ticks toward its final hour.

The Red Devils have been linked with moves for Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini as well as Athletic Bilbao’s Ander Herrera, but so far, neither player has joined the Old Trafford club.

Fellaini has handed in a transfer request in an attempt to force through the move, however, and could still sign for United before the 23:00 BST deadline.

Meanwhile, Herrera is also thought to be close to joining, with reports that David Moyes’s side are willing to activate his 30 million release clause.

Do you think United are right to send Powell out on loan? Will they land Fellaini and/or Herrera? Let us know in the comment section, below.
