What The Papers Say - 1 November


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

A number of Wednesday's newspapers have picked up on Sky Sports' Spanish football pundit Guillem Balague's claim that Everton have contacted Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo in order to sound out the Portuguese's interest in the Toffees' managerial vacancy.

The Daily Mail adds that Sean Dyche, Marco Silva and Sam Allardyce are all in the running for the post, while the Daily Star reports Allardyce would demand a "huge survival bonus" as part of any contract to boss the Blues.

Everton legend Peter Reid, meanwhile, is linked with a return to the Sunderland hotseat following the Wearsiders' decision to part company with Simon Grayson after last night's 3-3 draw with fellow Championship strugglers Bolton Wanderers.

Barnsley manager Paul Heckingbottom is featured in the Yorkshire Post heaping praise on Joe Williams, after Everton's loanee midfielder produced the "first real moment of quality in the game" when he scored a tremendous long-range goal in the Tykes' 4-2 victory at Burton on Tuesday.

The Liverpool Echo runs a piece weighing up the respective merits of the supposed candidates for the Everton job.

And the local paper starts to preview the Toffees' Europa League match in Lyon, with emphasis on the news that 18-year-old defender Morgan Feeney will be among the Everton party travelling to France.
