Everton defender ready to leave this summer

  Everton defender ready to leave this summer Everton defender Leighton Baines is ready to leave the club this summer and move on to pastures new. According to The Mirror, via HITC, a number of MLS clubs are keen on signing Baines – with his Everton teammate Wayne Rooney also set for a move to America. The report claims that Chicago Fire and Philadelphia are the two teams interested in bringing Baines across the Atlantic. Everton have been linked with a move for German international left-back Marvin Plattenhardt, as they look to replace Baines over the coming weeks. Reports have claimed that Everton are stepping up their interest in Plattenhardt, as Baines edges closer to his Goodison exit. Plattenhardt started Germany’s opening game at the World Cup in Russia this summer, as the reigning champions lost 1-0 to Mexico. The 33-year-old, Baines, has made over 400 appearances for Everton since joining the club from Wigan in 2007.

Everton have decided against making a move for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney, after learning of Celtic’s asking price.

Alasdair Lamont of the BBC today confirmed this latest breakthrough on Twitter.

This news will be music to the ears of Celtic fans who were desperate to hold on to their young prodigy.

The 21-year-old has been a supporter of the club for his whole life and joined Celtic at the age of just seven.

According to earlier reports, it had seemed a £25 million switch down south was becoming more and more likely but whilst no move was fully agreed, it all now seems dead in the water.

Tierney featured yesterday for Celtic in the 7-0 hammering of Shamrock Rovers and will be a crucial player when the Champions League Qualifiers kick off next week.

Everton closing in on deal to sign Barcelona defender .
Everton are believed to be edging ever closer to completing a deal for Barcelona defender Yerry Mina. The powerful centre-back was a standout performer for Colombia in their short-lived World Cup campaign and found the net on three occasions, portraying his threat from set-pieces. Mina is a player who is set to be in high demand this summer but according to an exclusive report from Goal, the Toffees are making significant efforts to land the player. Everton are set to strengthen their defensive options this summer and it’s claimed that Mina is a priority for the club, with Goal indicating that Marco Silva’s side are closing in on a deal worth €24 million. Sevilla centre-back Clement Lenglet is expected to complete a move to Barcelona in the near future, which would likely lead to the conclusion that Mina will be deemed surplus to Ernesto Valverde’s requirements. It’s claimed that Marcel Brands, Everton’s new director of football, held talks with representatives from Barcelona to negotiate a deal for Mina on Monday.
