James Rodriguez is in Doha to negotiate terms of a new contract as well as a transfer from Everton. The team interested in him is Al Rayyan of the Qatar Stars League. Negotiations are still ongoing for the superstar.

Rafa Benitez has given an update on the fitness of Salmon Rondon, who looked gassed after an hour on Saturday at Villa Park, [Echo]

The manager acknowledges Ellis Simms is hungry for minutes, but still needs to improve at least one key aspect of his game. [EFC]

“We made him an unbelievable offer, we didn’t want him to leave. We never envisaged it coming. Up until he actually did leave, we fought really hard to keep him. But when a player doesn’t want to be at your club, it’s very difficult to try and keep him.”

Everton finally announced the signing of highly-rated teenaged striker Francis Okoronkwo from Sunderland. [EFC]

Gabby George is yet to make her Walton Hall debut with the fans in the stands, and can’t wait for this weekend when the Blues host Birmingham City. [EFC]

Apparently Benitez is interested in getting AC Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli to sign a pre-contract in January with his current deal expiring in June 2022, while Juventus and Inter Milan hover. [CalcioMercatoWeb]
