Leroy Fer: Still being watched by Everton

The Dutch international midfielder was close to finalising a move to Everton late in January but the deal was called off after an issue arose between the two clubs.

But Everton are seemingly remaining on the player's trail as Sky Sports understands they watched him play at the weekend as Twente lost to Vitesse Arnhem.

A Twente spokesman refused to comment on Everton specifically but told Sky Sports: "There were a number of English clubs at the game."

Fer himself admits that he still has a high regard for Everton, and told Algemeen Dagblad: "It is still a fantastic club. But at the moment I am not thinking about it.

"Only one thing counts right now: ending the season at FC Twente in a good way."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
