Everton bid for Kyle Naughton

Just seen this come up on Sky Sports news,

It says we have bid £5million for Kyle Naughton - at last a proper transfer story!!

I can't say I know too much about him, though my mate says he looked the mustard in the play-off final defeat against Burnley. If the deal does go through he will join the likes of Lescott, Jags and Cahill as players who have joined us from the Championship - and all of them have gone on to be full internationals. If he proves to be as good as them, we are onto a winner.

This could spell the end for our current right-backs Hibbert of Jacobsen. Hibbert has been a steady and loyal member of the squad for nearly ten years now but if we are to progress I do think he may have to be sacrifced, the Cup Final showed up his limitations badly. As for Jacobsen, we didn't really see enough of him as he spent most of the year injured but he looked reasonable enough in the few times he did pull on a Blue shirt. However with his contract up I doubt he would want to sign a new one if he is to be second choice. I guess we will have to wait and see.

For now just enjoy a transfer story that isn't made up by the tabloid press!!!
