The Liverpool Echo
reports that Seamus Coleman has reached out to teenage Irish defender Andy McGovern, who broke his leg in a League of Ireland game last week.
Bray Wanderers caretaker boss Graham Kelly described Coleman as “a top class person” after the Everton full-back offered words of support to the 19-year-old, who suffered a broken fibula and ligament damage in Bray’s game against Dundalk.
Coleman was sidelined for 10 months after suffering a double broken leg while on international duty with Ireland in March 2017. But the popular 29-year-old made a barnstorming comeback for the Toffees against Leicester City in January and has gone on to produce a string of impressive displays since his return.
The Echo continues to suggest that the Blues are interested in signing Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho, while also speculating that West Ham United forward Marko Arnautovic could be a potential transfer target.
