Jo Talks Confirmed
Blues in talks with Man City as Jo trains in Scotland.
Everton officials have confirmed that discussions with Manchester City are continuing over the signing of Jo.
The Brazilian striker is training with the Blues at their pre-season training camp in Scotland as Everton and City negotiate a second deal for the player.
Jo spent the second part of the 2008/09 season on loan at Goodison Park and during that time he scored five times - including a brace on his debut against Bolton Wanderers.
And having impressed during that spell, attempts have begun to ensure the 22-year-old is an Everton player come the start of the Premier League season.
Chief Executive Robert Elstone confirmed: "We have had a conversation with Manchester City over the options available to us and discussions are set to continue."
Jo boasted an impressive scoring record at his former club CSKA Moscow before former City owner Thaskin Shinawatra splashed out £18 million to the break the Club's transfer record.
Ex-City boss Sven Goran Eriksson had been chasing Jo for six months prior to his departure but upon his arrival at Eastlands he struggled to settle under the new management team of Mark Hughes who sanctioned the January switch to Everton.
