Everton: Paddy Kenny thrilled by James Tarkowski transfer news

Everton: Paddy Kenny thrilled by James Tarkowski transfer news -Everton News

Former Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has been left thrilled by some transfer news that he has now heard from Everton.

The Lowdown: Medical done

As per Football Insider, James Tarkowski was undergoing a medical earlier this week ahead of an expected move to Goodison Park.

The 29-year-old will join the Toffees on a free transfer after he let his contract at Burnley expire this summer.

The Latest: Kenny thrilled by Tarkowski news

Speaking to Football Insider, Kenny was thrilled when he heard the news on Tarkowski, claiming that the defender is a ‘brilliant signing’ for Everton.

The Irishman, who represented Sheffield United and QPR in the top flight, said: “It’s a great signing. He has Premier League experience and he’s a good defender. He also hasn’t cost a penny being out of contract.

“I think it’s a brilliant signing. He’s a big, strong lad, an old-fashioned centre-half and I’m sure he will do well there.

“They need defenders after last season, they were nowhere near good enough. It’s an instant upgrade and a good start to what needs to be a busy window for Everton.

“They have to sign more players and I think they will. They can’t afford to have another season like the one that has just finished.”

The Verdict: No-brainer

Signing a player of Tarkowski’s quality and Premier League experience is certainly a no-brainer for Frank Lampard and Everton.

Once described as an ‘outstanding‘ defender by his former manager Sean Dyche, and a ‘real leader‘ at the back by former top-flight striker Noel Whelan, the 29-year-old should certainly help with the Toffees’ defensive problems after they conceded 66 times in the league last season, the fifth-most of any team in the division.

Everton fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

Nonetheless, Yerry Mina has reportedly now been told that he can leave this summer, and West Ham have been linked with a move for Michael Keane, so the Blues will be expected to bring in one or two new centre-backs this summer, and Tarkowski would certainly fit the mould.
