Despite the transfer window closing there was one final twist for Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley.
Transfer deadline day started with Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley reportedly snubbing Everton, but the day ended with Everton snubbing Cleverley.
Rumours linking Everton with the Manchester United midfielder had been strong throughout the summer.
But as the transfer window deadline drew near it looked like the 24-year-old who had been made surplus to requirements by Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal would not be making the move to Everton and instead would be joining Aston Villa.
According to the Express after speaking with Aston Villa assistant manager Roy Keane over the weekend he only had eyes for a move to Villa Park, whilst other reports said that the two clubs had agreed an £8million transfer last week.
The only stumbling block was on wages and as that dragged on it would seem that Everton turned his head once again.
So as the link to Everton built up once again on Monday, the Telepgraph stated that Cleverley took the gamble that he wanted to join Everton, calling a halt to his talks with Villa.
The problem for him though was that Everton were not prepared to do a permanent deal, with Sky Sports News reporting that Everton wanted a loan deal and Manchester United wanted to sell.
Both sides failed to agree anything and so it looked like Cleverley would remain unwanted at Manchester United.
But Tuesday saw Cleverley leave Old Trafford on loan.
But not to Everton, as he popped back up at Aston Villa.
The two sides agreeing a season-long loan move for the 25-year-old.
For the deal to have gone through on Tuesday, both sides would have to have struck the deal late on transfer deadline day and requested an extension, which was then approved by the Premier League's board.
So the question is, did Everton miss out? Did we change our minds? Or were we never interested to begin with?
