The News Of The Screws are running with ’s keen eye (the left one) has been caught by Jack Rodwell.

There’s a number of issues here. The figure quoted is near close to hysterical as you could possibly make it. This naturally is based upon the fact he’s English and somehow managed to get him to autograph a 5 year extension to his contract at the end of last season.

The likely hood of Everton flogging him off is I would suggest high. What Moyes could achieve with the nigh on £20 million Rodders is more likely to achieve would arguably be more use to him than hanging on to the player himself. Your average Toffee in the street is likely to say that’s not true, but to paraphrase Mandy Rice Davies, they would say that, wouldn’t they?

Rodwell is undoubtedly good stuff and if the impending departure of Sgt Wilson – a man clearly damaged since his personal tragedies – would facilitate the numbers as suggested by the NOTW, then it might be a good idea.

My hesitancy is that I see Wilshire, Wickham, Rodwell and Henderson out there yet can’t help but wonder if we get involved we end up buying the lemon.  Oh, I’m a cheery soul.
