Ever­ton fu­els De­pay trans­fer spec­u­la­tion

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports International Football - BY RORY O’CAL­LAGHAN/

Ever­ton have dropped yet an­other hint that they could be pre­par­ing a move for Manch­ester United mis­fit Mem­phis De­pay.

De­pay has fallen out of favour at Old Traf­ford un­der Jose Mour­inho and has been strongly linked with a move to Good­i­son Park in Jan­uary.

And, after Ron­ald Koe­man said he “would like to have” De­pay ear­lier this week, Ever­ton’s of­fi­cial Twit­ter ac­count posted an up­date of the striker’s in­ter­na­tional ex­ploits with Hol­land in Lux­em­bourg on Sun­day.

“Half time in Guinea and the hosts lead @Yan­nick­Bo­lasie’s DR Congo 1-0. Else­where, Mem­phis De­pay has put @On­sOranje ahead v Lux­em­bourg,” read the tweet.

Premier League clubs reg­u­larly pro­vide up­dates on their own play­ers dur­ing in­ter­na­tional breaks.

How­ever, to com­ment on a ri­val club’s player is un­heard of and could be a sign that Ever­ton a pre­par­ing a move for the 22-year-old.

Koe­man is known to be a fan of the former PSV striker and be­lieves he should be play­ing more un­der Mour­inho at Old Traf­ford.
