Brazilian midfielder Anderson da Silva will finally be able to start his Everton career in the next few weeks, according to chairman Bill Kenwright.

Everton spent £700,000 in 2005 to sign Da Silva from Uruguayan side National Montevideo but could not play him as he does not have a EU passport.

 

Da Silva has been loaned out to Spanish side Malaga but his passport problems have now been solved.

 

Kenwright said: "There is a possibility he could join in the next few weeks."

 

The arrival of Da Silva would be a boost for Everton boss David Moyes, who is keen to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window.

 

Kenwright explained: "Anderson da Silva came over here to spend some time with us and impressed David.

 

"We bought his federative and economic rights but could not secure his player registration because he did not have the correct passport.

 

"He was supposed to have a passport by the January window and then by May.

 

"By June we were getting fed up, not by the player but by the people around him promising the passport would be ready.

 

"We believe he eventually got a passport as he has been able to play in Spain this season and we are talking to his agent at the moment."

He's already training with us - there's a rumour Kenwright told fans on Goodison Road that he won't play "because Moyes doesn't rate him". 700k down the drain then...

 

 

Well why the fuck did we bring him in here in the first place, all that hassle for someone the manager does'nt rate, typical Everton

I agree with you StevO, why would they spend two years pursuing a player the manager does'nt want, they have spent money on loads of paperwork just to get clearances and permits, which to me means he must be fairly good.
