Everton round-up: Vlasic exit wish, Gomes 'comfortable' and Robinson hopes
Vlasic exit wish
Nikola Vlasic has admitted he would find it easy to leave Everton permanently in the summer. The Croatian has found form and happiness with CSKA Moscow in Russia after being loaned out to the club in the summer.
Speaking to Bob Soccer in Russia, the £10 million midfielder said it would be ‘a very easy choice’ for him to leave Everton and join the Russian club permanently this summer.
Vlasic appears to have burnt some bridges at Everton and most fans would probably like to see him leave the club.
Andre Gomes has spoken of his happiness at Everton once again. As reported by the Liverpool Echo, the Portuguese international has said he finds it an ‘honour’ playing for Everton and feels ‘really comfortable’ at Goodison Park.
Gomes has made a fine impression since joining on a loan deal from Barcelona in the summer. The talented midfielder was too expensive for a permanent deal in the summer but the club has admitted they will try to secure his long-term stay in the future.
Return of the Jedi
Antonee Robinson is hopeful of a long-term future at Everton after he returns to the club next summer. Speaking to US Soccer, he admits he is not quite ready for the Premier League but believes Everton ‘have faith’ in his ability.
‘Jedi’, as he is well-known, has been in good form at Wigan Athletic on loan this season. Unfortunately, he has recently been ruled out with an injury until the new year.
