MailOnline report that the Iranian-born businessman was joined by Bill Kenwright at the club's training facility primarily to discuss plans for the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock but he also spoke with manager Ronald Koeman.
That has been seen by some as further backing for the Dutchman, who is under pressure following a sequence of poor results that means Everton come into this weekend's fixtures in 16th place in the Premier League.

Let's see how the players respond on Sunday. If Koeman picks two defensive midfielders and a back three, we will find goals very hard to come by.
I think this is what he will do but, after Sigurdsson performed well for Iceland in his natural central role, the manager will confirm his idiocy if he plays the lad out on the left again.
I would play Calvert-Lewin up top with Rooney handed a free role off him. If we are served up more gruel, the natives will be restless.

Moshiri is probably more familiar with the route to Talksport Towers than a training ground! Kenwright without doubt running his eye over the player assets he can sell in the next transfer window more often than not, well below their market value. What a useless pair of twats they are!
And as for PE teacher sorry I mean, Director of Football, Steve Walsh don't get me started!

This visit can't have been good news for Koeman or Kenwright.
Something like: "What the fuck are you two doing? And where's Walsh I want a fucking word with him too."
If it didn't go like that, we are in trouble.

I can't see what the fuss is about – he gets criticised for not delivering a new stadium... then gets criticised for having a meeting about a new stadium.
Who'd want to own a football club!?!

Has Kenwright been having a love-in and told his bezzie mate, Moyes, to be on stand-by when the Dutch version gets torpedoed???

I can't see Koeman listening to endless Boys Pen stories like ginger and Roberto would have. Ronald is a cold fish who's probably got no mates.

The fundamental problem is none of the hierarchy know anything about football. We are in a deep crisis of which I do not know the answer but it certainly isn't selling your 3 best players in Stones, Lukaku and Barkley. We have been selling our best players and humiliating ourselves to the Manc twats for far too long.
Only a scouser would really get this. I like Unsworth but I have one big reservation; he wouldn't attract top players we need a box to box central midfield player which we haven't had for 20+ years; a Roy Keane, Scholes who can spray the ball around with a range of passing and doesn't let anyone take the ball off him. It isn't Schneiderlin he has zero pace.
To play with intensity you need two quick wing backs. It isn't Baines and Martina. You need a quick striker with strength and good movement. It isn't Calvert-Lewin he is inexperienced and one-dimensional. We have no up-and-coming talents that I have seen. I would give Jose Baxter a run of games in the first team with Niasse up front.

I think Tom Davies could be the box-to-box player you are talking about.

Hopefully, some transfers in January may boost our chances for the remainder of the season. But even this will just be steadying the ship until next summer.
I remember Alex Ferguson being one game away from the sack. And the optimist in me hopes Koeman does the same. I have my doubts. But I still hope.

We could only improve in spite of Koeman not because of him.

He was very disrespectful to the club the in his final year and during his short stay at Manchester United and I can't support someone like that.

Tom Davies? Headless chicken.
