Move to Goodison Drawing Closer?

Move to Goodison Drawing Closer?

With only two appearance sunder his belt for Manchester United this season, the grapevine is alive with the inference that Darren Gibson will be leaving Old Trafford before the transfer window slams shut.

That same grapevine infers that Gibson has had talks with Everton about a possible move and that the clubs have agreed a fee said to be in the region of £2.5 million.

Our feelings are that this is a done deal and we should standby for an announcement from within the confines of Old Trafford.

In my opinion he has never been United quality, granted he has a great shot, but he has never stood out, noe almost mid twenties the conclusion must be that he has not fulfilled his promise, and its better to part ways.

It is a done deal, will be unveiled on Friday. No way will it be 2.5mil though, rumour around Everton is that it is 500K up front with extra add ons. To me he seems the type of player that could thrive under Moyes, and given some consistent game time which he never has had at United and he could be a Moyesie bargain

He definately a good player, and would improve the Everton squad, which has done very well given their finances.. Good luck Gibbo.

His always had the potential to be a decent Premier League midfielder but just hasn't fulfilled it. I'm disappointed by Gibson, not only for not fulfilling his potential but also because I don't really feel he gave it his all to be at this club. With the state of our midfield due to injuries and lacking quality par 2 players this really was the chance to stamp some sort of authority but he hasn't. Slightly annoyed also the Pogba and Morrison didn't get given the game time wasted on him. Best of luck to him and Everton, can't see the sense in the deal myself though as Barkley, Fellaini and Rodwell are all better than him.

Rodwell and Fellaini cannot be relied upon because they have had a history of injuries (especially Rodwell). Barkley doesnt have the fitness capability to be a box-to-box midfielder just yet. And to be honest, cant see all 3 remaining at the club for much longer due to our financhial problems. After that, are the likes of Heitinga (centre back) and Neville (should be retired by now), and I would take Gibson over those two anyday. Even if he doesnt start, 500K for a relatively young lad who has played in some big games (didnt he play in the semis of the CL last season?) as cover isnt the worse thing to have, and he gives us an extra body in the squad (which is incredibly thin)

Fair dues to slur alex on this one - takes a managerial genius to shift dross like Gibson, and for good money too! What's he done, promised Moyes the job at old toilet in a couple years time?
13/01/2012 13:42:00
Reckon we`ve scored in the January sales there (Which is more than we can do on the pitch ) The lad is a very good player and I have no doubt DM can transform him into a top premier footballer.
13/01/2012 16:20:00
FCB - hes not dross - hes just not up to playing for us - he would walk into most other teams in the prem - just not one of the top 4 teams.....
13/01/2012 17:40:00
Bit nice there worlok I can't see him getting into any of the top 7 sides, he's not as bad and fcb makes out though. Fair dues Rob mate you know your club and it's players better than me.
13/01/2012 20:47:00
City could have paid 30 Million for him and 220k a week salary hes an improvement on Nasri or Milner well maybe not much but Gibbo has more medals in his draw
