Everton news round-up - 24th January 2013

It's been a quiet few days in the papers for Everton, perhaps everyone is wrapped up in FA Cup fever?

I know that comment will sound strange to most Premier League sides out there, FA Cup fever? In round four? When you've got an away trip to Bolton?

Thankfully though, we're not just any Premier League side, we're Everton and us Evertonians love the FA Cup and that's why almost 5,000 of us are making the trip.

It could have been twice that figure if it wasn't for health and safety concerns from Greater Manchester Police officials and local councillors.

It will surprise many, but not Everton, last season we took almost 7,000 to Sunderland for a quarter-final replay on a Wednesday night. There's no arguments about whether we support our club!

So on to the news.

Ross Barkley has once again been impressing in the Championship. After an excellent loan move to Sheffield Wednesday earlier in the season, he now finds himself at Leeds United and he's already been in impressive form.

Unfortunately for Leeds however, he will not be available for their FA Cup clash with Tottenham on Sunday.

'We asked the question, but it's perfectly understandable that he won't be available,' said Leeds boss Neil Warnock.

Everton man Seamus Coleman is still awaiting news regarding his recent injury. The Republic of Ireland defender has undergone tests after he limped off against Southampton after injuring his thigh.

19-year-old Jacob Rinne from Swedish Division 1 Norra (third tier) side BK Forward is set to come over to Everton for a trial.

Rinne is a goalkeeper and I'd assume of some quality if he has managed to catch the eye of our scouting network despite the level of football that he is currently playing.

And finally, we're not sure why this is such a surprise to everyone, but Yann M'Vila is apparently set to reject offers from the Premier League to move to cash rich Russian side Rubin Kazan.

What's that I hear you cry, you read that on Vital Everton on Monday? Yes we know, but apparently everyone else is just catching up.

'Snubbed! M'Vila rejects QPR and Tottenham' shouts the Daily Mail headline in Thursday's paper.

But it has brought one snippet of news, the transfer fee is a cool £9.6million which Rennes have accepted, whilst the midfielder has agreed a four-year deal, worth in excess of £3-million-a-season, so not exactly the kind of financial agreement we could have reached if we had been interested as the British media had previously suggested.
