Everton tracking Hungarian 'keeper

14/05/2012 | Comments (3)
David Moyes apparently has his eye on Balazs Megyeri as potential competition for Tim Howard.

The Mirror report that the manager has watched the Hungarian U-21 international who currently plays for Olympiacos and is valued around 800,000.

The 22-year-old is believed to have signalled his desire to play in the Premier League.

So EFC are now tracking a Hungarian keeper - presumably to replace Ruddy who wasn't good enough for them, but who is apparently good enough to play for England this year..!

Think you are missing an important point, Rupert. He was able to develop his game and all that comes with it, in the Championship with Norwich. Everton could not afford to give him that development time in the Premier League.

That is one of the calls managers have to make. They know the player is good but can't utilise him in the forseeable future and have to let him move on for the good of his career. Most managers have been there, seen it and understand it, fully in the knowledge that the player may pop up in the future and 'prove them wrong'.

With the news today that 3 keepers have been released, this sounds a bit more believable.
