What The Papers Say - 5 July

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez is rumoured to be interested in taking 19-year-old Manchester United striker James Wilson on loan in today's Daily Star Sunday.

The England Under-20 international has made a handful of first-team appearances for the Old Trafford outfit and is also said to be a target for Hull City.

There's more speculation in the Observer, who suggest Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is still looking at Everton right-back Seamus Coleman, while another tabloid tip Blues striker Chris Long to join Championship Burnley on a season-long loan.

Meanwhile, The People hint Sunderland could be set to turn their attention to Toffees winger Aiden McGeady after another target, Dutchman Georginio Wijnaldum, reportedly snubbed them in favour of rivals Newcastle United.

Finally, the Sunday Echo quote new boy Tom Cleverley, who says he hopes his move to Goodison Park can propel him back into the England first team, while they also look at how young left-back Luke Garbutt can benefit from showing the same patience defensive teammate Leighton Baines did during his own first few years at Goodison Park.
