Walcott reveals how Wayne Rooney offered Everton transfer

Walcott reveals how Wayne Rooney offered Everton transfer

England global Walcott progressed through Southampton's youth system and made 22 appearances for the Saints before moving to Arsenal in 2006. However, it is not just in the attacking department that the Toffees have begun to struggle.

The 30-year-old winger has been made available following Everton's £20m signing of Theo Walcott. Seamus Coleman is back in training but this one comes too soon for the Republic of Ireland skipper.

It was a solid team performance from West Brom with every player contributing to the win.

EVERTON boss Sam Allardyce is hoping his side can end a run of four defeats in all competitions when West Brom visit Goodison on Saturday.

Last weekend, Sam Allardyce's side were thrashed 4-0 at Wembley by Spurs, a result which leaves them 9th in the table.

Elsewhere, Pardew remained tight-lipped over Jay Rodriguez after the striker was reported to the Football Association for allegedly abusing defender Gaetan Bong during West Brom's 2-0 win over Brighton. Despite Pardew stating that their home games should be their priority, the former Newcastle manager will be desperate to turn around West Brom's form away from the Hawthorns. The Toffees have lost three straight and have just two points in their last five games.

Craig Dawson and Ahmed Hegazi both face late fitness tests but are expected to be available for West Brom.

James Morrison and Nacer Chadli are still a couple of weeks away from returning for the Baggies.

After a summer of transfer excesses, Everton have once again been the first Premier League side to dip heavily into the transfer market. The Baggies ended their 20 game winless streak against Brighton but are still 19th.

On paper, Saturday afternoon appears to be a game where goals will be a rare commodity.

Rondon was in floods of tears and visibly devastated by the incident, having to be consoled by West Brom manager Alan Pardew.

Everton are strong favourites, at 6/5 to win this match.
