‘Who?’ Not many Everton fans here in the Transfer Tavern are aware of who Anton Donkor is, so the Liverpool Echo’s report that the Toffees are ready to work on a deal to extend his stay at the club has come as a surprise.
The 19-year-old joined the Merseysiders on loan from Wolfsburg in January, but has only featured three times for the club’s U-23s due, in part, to a nasty ankle injury.
He returned to Germany to recover from his set-back, but reports suggest Everton remain keen on him and are planning talks this summer regarding another spell at Goodison Park.
Ronald Koeman’s side are eager to assess Donkor fully as they ponder a permanent deal for the wide midfielder, but are seemingly reluctant to commit to the current £1.5m clause they have in place to keep him without seeing him in action for a prolonged period of time.
Everton can compete for a Champions League spot next season – agree?
