A selection of the latest news and gossip from Everton.

Ziyech not interested

Everton have been told by the agent of Hakim Ziyech that he is not interested in a move to Goodison Park.

The Moroccan international was heavily linked with a host of clubs in the summer. However, a deal to join Roma collapsed and he signed a new deal with Ajax.

Everton were one of the other teams interested. However, his agent Rene van der Gijp has informed Voetbal Primeur that the 25-year-old is too good for Everton and is hoping for a move to a team like Liverpool or Arsenal this summer.
