Duncan Ferguson explains Everton transfer stance as deadline day approaches

Everton manager Duncan Ferguson gives update on his role in any expected business during the remainder of the January transfer window.

Everton have had a busy January transfer window so far with the Merseyside club adding Vitaliy Mykolenko, Nathan Patterson and Anwar El Ghazi to their ranks.

The trio were all signed by Rafa Benitez, who was sacked from his role as Blues’ manager on 16 January.

Club legend Duncan Ferguson has taken caretaker reins with Everton sat 16th in the Premier League table.

The Blues are said to be looking at several options to replace Benitez in the near future and are set to interview Vitor Pereira according to The Times.

Despite having no permanent manager and there being less than a week remaining until the winter window closes, this doesn’t stop players being linked to Goodison Park this month.

Ferguson gives transfer involvement update

Speculation surrounding new names linked to Everton have cooled due to their ongoing search for a new manager.

However, Ferguson has given an update as to whether he’ll have any involvement in upcoming signings.

Speaking after their 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa on Saturday, the Scotsman said he doesn’t expect to be involved in making any further signings this month.

However, he’s happy to help with this if called upon.

"No, I’ve had no inkling of that,” Ferguson told a post-match press conference.

"That’ll be down to other people, who’ll be making the decisions. I’m sure if they want to ask me about anything, obviously I’m here.

"But that’d be down to other people I would think."

The winter transfer window closes at 23:00 on 31 January.
