I reckon it could be that theyve found sumthing in the medical, like scaring from his injury and they wwant to pay on the drip, and I dont blame them.

The potential signing of Wolves central defender Joleon Lescott is in the balance after reported revelations during a medical.

 

 

The 23 year old agreed personal terms during the week after Everton and Wolves agreed a fee.

 

Lescott was set to become the club's second signing in less than a week pending the results of a medical. It is believed that the results have alerted Everton of a previous long term injury the defender had to his knee whilst at Wolves, which had kept him off the pitch for a full season.

 

Everton fans will instantly recall the episode regarding Mikael Forssell's proposed transfer from Chelsea which was abruptly cancelled due to a longstanding injury the Fin had been carrying.

 

The decision, although at the time was viewed by the frustrated Evertonians as wrong, paid off in the long term has Forssell failed to repeat the goalscoring exploits he had demonstrated in the past for Birmingham.

 

The club are reportedly keen to renegotiate the fee with Wolves as they are reluctant to pay what is believed to be near 5 million for a player carrying a threatening injury.

 

 

......or......

Everton are waiting for a second opinion on xrays of his knees before completing the deal and if they are ok he will sign on Monday, if its not ok then we will try and renegotiate staggered payments based on appearances.

Could be waiting for a second opinion, but Everton will have known all about him missing a season through knee injuries, I knew about it ages ago, when we were first rumoured to be interested - so I won't have come as a suprise.

 

Staggered payments wouldn't be a bad idea. But he has played two seasons of football since so I wouldn't have thought we would have much room to broker a deal.

 

Anyway, he sounds a very decent player. A defender, as Wolves fan 'player of the year' and one of the most highly respected center half in the Championship, are decent references in my opinion.

 

Coming from the Championship will have the drive to make it at Prem level.

 

Fingers crossed the deal is concluded on Monday.

My mums steak and kidney after the divvying up of the meat...I love kidney, the rest of the family hated it so they ended up with steak pie and I had kidney pie :lol: magic!

 

Why are we talking about pies in a Lescott thread?

Because we as Evertonians are an intelligent and well informed bunch, but we still like our grub. :D

Lescott transfer in danger of collapse Jun 5 2006

 

 

By Ian Doyle, Daily Post

 

 

JOLEON LESCOTT'S move to Everton was in the balance last night as doubts grow over the defender's long-term fitness.

 

The Goodison outfit will today decide whether to proceed with the £5million deal for the Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-back once they discover the findings of a series of stringent tests.

 

With Lescott due to sign a lengthy contract, Goodison officials requested an extra set of X-rays on Friday given the player's history of knee problems.

 

Goodison officials are believed to be unhappy with comments made by Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey over the weekend that stated Lescott had passed a medical.

 

 

"The devil is in the detail and discussions with Everton are ongoing," said Moxey. "Joleon played in every game for Wolves last season and, as we expected, he has passed his medical."

 

 

This is not the case, with Everton wary the Championship side are attempting to place pressure on them to push the transfer through.

id rather they take their time than do another fuck up

 

correct, if we sign another crock then imagine the uproar, if we can knock a bit of money off then it may be a good bit of business, if not then its possibley for the best, the last thing we need is a injury prone player who cost a substantial amount of money and who is on high wages!

I can understand what everyone is saying about being careful and I agree to it but the thing is we knew what the problems where in the first place.

 

Also he played every game last season the only player for wolves to do that.

The answer is half the fee (£2.5m) on a 2 year deal and if hes ok at the end of that give, them the rest for another 3 year deal.

No need for a 5 year deal straight off if they are worried.

Yes but they had rejected 4.5 million from Reading so they would not go for this IMO

Fair point Scouse, but if there is a real issue over his knee's and we have medical evidence of a problem, the split payment idea is the only one Wolves will get.

The thing that is really annoying me about this is that Everton are not coming out and saying anything.

 

Its reported all over (including the Wolves chairman) that we are stalling on the deal.

 

If that is the case just come out and say you want to get more medicals done otherwise Wolves will get fed up with it the fans will get fed up with it and not only that the player himself will get fed up with it.

I'm sick of the stalling over the reason for stalling, maybe I could just be stalling over offering an opinion about the stalling. :D

One thing is certain, if we pull out of the deal because of his dodgy knees, no one else is going to come in and pay £5.5m for him. I think Everton are in the driving seat to get a better deal, and being mentioned with Marseille's Meite, and Hearts centre half Webster, at least they are letting Wolves know that we can go somewhere else if they dont come to an agreement.

 

I do wish people would stop asking the same question about "whats going on" ? on every lescott thread, when we already know why the deal hasnt gone through.

 

EFC are under no obligation to say anything about a player from another club, they cant come out and state publicly that Lescott has dodgy knees, :blink: thats not ethical and i for one would be dissapointed if they did.

 

Everybody needs to chill out, go about their everyday routine, and things will be sorted one way or the other.

Please FFS, no more enquiries about why the club are not making any statements.

From today's soaraway scum...

 

JOLEON LESCOTT is finally poised to join Everton from Wolves in a £5million deal.

 

The centre-back, 23, feared the move was going to break down due to problems with his medical.

 

Everton were reluctant to go ahead with the move as Lescott had both knees reconstructed three years ago.

 

But the transfer has been re-worked with the fee now linked to appearances.

 

Meanwhile, Everton centre-back David Weir, 36, is stalling on signing a new one-year deal — which will alert Birmingham, Leeds and West Brom.

 

...so it must be true...maybe :unsure: .

94 games in 2 seasons since his surgery i'd still buy him but we are doing the right thing restructuring the payments, i'm relativly happy with the progress and the general way we are dealing with this transfare.

Nope tbh if there not sure you dont buy its as simple as that,he may well have gotten thru those games bu that was in the first divsion.

 

There are other players around after all,but given evertons finances they'll like the easy terms on offer for him.

The highly-rated centre half passed a medical with The Toffees on Saturday, but Everton have so far delayed on a final decision after also agreeing personal terms.

 

With both clubs coming to an agreement the issue remained with the Premiership side as they had concerns over his long-term fitness, but Moxey now expects the deal to be pushed through imminently.

 

"We are into the final details of the deal," Moxey told the club's official website.

 

"I have been confident of this transfer being completed throughout and I'm optimistic it could be finalised in the next day or two."

 

Lescott will join Andy Johnson as Everton's second high-profile signing of the summer should the deal be finalised by the Merseyside outfit.

Still nothing from Everton though.

 

Won't beleive anything till I see him in Everton shirt.

 

Would have thought that if nearly a done deal then Everton would come out and say something.

I am glad someone mentioned Muller as keep forgeting to ask about it.

 

Was to young to really remember what happened.

 

Can anyone explain.

 

I remember him meant to be there to sign a contract and then he left without signing one but don't know why or what was meant to have happened

I think he wanted his wages tax free, which would have already made him our highest paid player and was never part of the deal. He made some other demands if I remember as well like a free house.
