According to the Daily Mail, Everton are still in advanced talks with MSP Sports Capital for fresh investment, despite earlier suggestions that it was unlikely.

MUFG and JP Morgan Chase were said to have led the search for funding and all three financial institutions are comfortable with the accounts at Goodison Park.

Although potential points deductions have raised alarms, due diligence on the club has been completed and the three institutions are still on board, bringing some relief.

The article notes that Everton are only two points above the drop having played one or two more games than the clubs around them in the Premier League, and a points deduction could cause mayhem if it was the reason for relegation.

However, nothing like that appears likely to happen before the end of this season, allowing investment to be pumped into the club and for Everton to concentrate on staying up.

Farhad Moshiri is said to be praying that the MSP Sports Capital investment gets signed off sooner rather than later, with suggestions he could reluctantly fund the stadium himself.

Everton flop Dele Alli tipped to end up at ‘5-a-side with pals’ after claim he went awol

The future of Dele Alli’s football career is in doubt after his recent loan spell with Turkish club Besiktas was disrupted by reported absences without leave.

The former Tottenham midfielder’s stock has fallen dramatically since being touted as one of England’s brightest prospects just a few years ago.

His current situation has led to speculation about what lies ahead for him, with some suggesting that Alli might have to hang up his boots and give up on his footballing ambitions.

One of his former managers has even gone so far as to suggest that the 25-year-old might resort to playing five-a-side football with his mates if he cannot find a new club this summer.

Despite his talent and potential, it seems that Alli’s career has hit a serious roadblock, and it remains to be seen whether he can turn things around and rediscover the form that made him such a sought-after player not too long ago.

Alli denied the claim, posting on Instagram: “Hey guys just had loads of messages so wanted to clear something up. The club gave me permission to attend a doctor’s appointment today. I’m due back in training tomorrow [Thursday] as normal.”

It appears that Alli is not in high demand at Besiktas, as he has only played in 13 matches and his last appearance was a month ago. Although he still has over a year left on his Everton contract, his future at the club seems grim.

There are concerns about his attitude, but one of his previous managers, Karl Robinson, believes that he is simply misunderstood and has a strong desire to play football.

“He’s still only 26, there’s still a lot of football left in him. I guarantee you, in the summer, he will be playing five-a-side somewhere with his mates,” Robinson, who managed Alli at MK Dons, told talkSPORT.

“Yeah, you’ll see things on social media. He’ll be out, doing things abroad. But he’ll be playing somewhere with his mates on a park playing five-a-side football.”

Robinson, who recently left Oxford United, said: “I was having a chat with Sam Allardyce the other day because he dropped him for his only England game. He [Allardyce] said he wasn’t happy one bit. He said he sulked, he did this, he did that. But then he put him on as sub and he changed the game and was the best player on the pitch.”
