Everton Reject Seamus Coleman Bid
Everton reject Coleman bid
Everton have rejected a surprise bid from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain for Seamus Coleman,
Money is seemingly no object for the wealthy French giants, who are looking to bolster they defensive ranks and have reportedly identified Coleman, who signed a five-year-deal with the Toffees last summer, as their top target.
The news comes in the wake of Everton chairman Bill Kenwright’s statement about John Stones, who has been the talk of the summer window, due to Chelsea’s aggressive advances.
Kenwright backed his manager by saying the 21-year-old centre-back will not be sold this summer as he is key to Roberto Martinez’s future plans for the Toffeemen.
Coleman is also a huge part of Martinez’s plans at Goodison and PSG’s reported offer, believed to be around £20million, will not be entertained.
Everton have no financial need to sell any of their star players and Coleman recently stated how happy he is on Merseyside.
The Irishman has been a key component of Everton’s defence for a number of years and is one of Everton’s best ever transfers, costing just £60,000 from Sligo Rovers in 2008.
