A report suggesting that Manchester United had been “monitoring” Everton's Jordan Pickford brings back memories of when Alex Ferguson was linked with a move for Goodison Park idol Neville Southall in the turbulent summer of 1990 which culminated with the Welshman's infamous half-time sit-down incident.

But if the Spaniard had continued to stall on his contract then Pickford and Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak were said to be top of the Red Devils' wanted list.

Fortunately for 21st century Blues, it seems fears of England's number one following the likes of Wayne Rooney, Marouane Fellaini or Romelu Lukaku (plus David Moyes of course) to Old Trafford have now been abated with David De Gea believed to be on the verge of signing a new deal.

“Both goalkeeper Neville Southall and midfielder Kevin Sheedy seem intent on leaving Goodison Park.

On August 1, the ECHO reported that Everton had finally received Neville Southall's transfer request late yesterday but by then manager Colin Harvey had already indicated that he wasn't prepared to accept it.

A heady mix of Luciano Pavarotti's tenor voice belting out Nessum Dorma and future Everton player Paul Gascoigne's tears at the World Cup in Italy had helped the game win a degree of new-found respectably with a nationwide audience, particularly in middle England.

Wild rumours abound that manager Colin Harvey had targeted Egypt's World Cup keeper Ahmed Shoubair, 29, as a potential replacement only to be hit with work permit issues.
