Everton 'rejected Guimaraes and Militao'


EVERTON have been accused of snubbing the signings of Bruno Guimaraes and Eder Militao - now big hits for Newcastle and Real Madrid respectively

The Toffees are in disarray and deep in a relegation dogfight as they search for a new manager to replace the axed Frank Lampard.

It comes amid years of poor recruitment, with talkSPORT host Simon Jordan claiming agent Kia Joorabchian had too much influence at Goodison Park.

But Jordan called the White and Jordan show to say: "We offered many, many players, and they turned them all down.

“All the signings of the summer – James Tarkowski, Conor Coady, Neal Maupay, Dwight McNeil, the list goes on, all the loans and signings they [Everton] did – were done purely by them and the board. We didn’t have any involvement.

“We speak to all the owners, I speak to quite a few club owners, but the point is, what is our job? Our job is to present what we have as a client list and say, ‘This is what we have’.

“And Everton haven’t taken any of our advice. So we can’t be that influential.”

He added: “In the past, we have offered them Bruno Guimaraes at £16million when he was leaving Athletico Paranaense. They didn’t like him and they went for Jean-Philippe Gbamin instead and Guimaraes went to Lyon.

“We offered them Eder Militao when he was leaving [first club Sao Paulo in Brazil, before he joined Porto – now he’s starring at Real Madrid].”
