Everton say no to Fer?

Everton say no to Fer?

It all seemed to be going rather smoothly, Everton had agreed a deal with FC Twente for Dutch international Leroy Fer and the 23-year-old midfielder was reportedly very keen to make the move to Goodison Park.

Reports in the Post suggested that as well as agreeing a £8.6million fee with FC Twente, Fer had also agreed a four-and-a-half year contract.

All that was left was to undergo the usual medical and the deal could be quickly concluded.

Unfortunately that medical has revealed a problem with his knee. It's not serious enough to scupper the deal completely and Everton are still keen to complete the deal, but Everton now want to re-negotiate the transfer in order to add various appearance related clauses to protect ourselves from the possibility of Fer not fulfilling his potential due to injury.

Fer has already missed two months of the Eredivisie season after sustaining the knee injury on international duty in September, but while Everton appear to be happy to still pay the full amount albeit in staged payments and clauses, FC Twente are unwilling to negotiate.

'Everton have additional requirements on the method of payment. Here we do not agree so it's stuck.

'We don't play that game here at Twente. They can come up with any demand they wish but we're not playing along with their demands.'
Twente chairman Joop Munsterman told De Telegraaf.

The BBC have reported that Everton have placed a deadline on the decision for before kick-off against West Bromwich Albion this evening.

Hopefully everything gets resolved, seems Everton wants the player, the player wants to move to Everton and Twente have already other targets in mind. Understand why Everton are hesitant, 8.5mil is a massive investment from the club and are simply looking out for their best interests.
