Blues Closing In On Jo
Club officials aiming to finalise a deal ahead of tonight's trip to Bury.
Everton officials are aiming to finalise a deal for Jo ahead of tonight's trip to Bury.
The Blues have been in continuing discussions with Manchester City over the striker since announcing talks on Tuesday.
Jo, a Brazilian international, spent five months on loan at Goodison Park last season, netting five times in 12 appearances.
Now David Moyes wants to bring the 22-year-old, who has spent the week at Everton's training camp in Scotland, back to Merseyside.
It's hoped the deal will be completed in time for Jo to feature in this evening's friendly - the first of Everton's pre-season campaign.
The Blues are also seeking international clearance for new signing Shkodran Mustafi ahead of the trip to Gigg Lane.
Mustafi, 17, completed a free transfer from German outfit Hamburg on Tuesday.
