Everton investment news: MSP Sports Capital timeline emerges with documents singed

Everton owner Farhad Moshiri will not reportedly be looking to conclude the deal with MSP Sports Capital this week despite an agreement.

According to Liverpool Echo journalist Joe Thomas, while the documents have been signed to secure exclusivity, the focus this week will be on Premier League survival.

The Toffees may require a win against Bournemouth on the final day of the season to secure their status in the Premier League next term.

Via Twitter, Thomas wrote, “Latest on Everton and speculation around the club’s future. MSP Sports Capital the frontrunner in the battle for Farhad Moshiri’s ear, though immediate focus is on Premier League survival rather than concluding any deal this week, as suggested elsewhere.”

Not a full takeover unfortunately

While Everton fans will appreciate the fact that there is money being pumped into the club, there’s a likelihood of Farhad Moshiri still calling the shots.

He has been the reason why they’ve struggled and found themselves in this sort of mess where they’ve been fighting relegation two years in a row.

Apart from that, they’ve also got issues with FFP which have seen them not being able to spend lavishly in the transfer market.

When clubs around them are breaking their transfer records, Everton have had to rely on loan or free agent signing and have on occasion, not even managed to sign anyone.

Leeds losing to West Ham may have helped them a great deal and an Everton shareholder has sent a message to David Moyes after that game, but more needs to be done behind the scenes.

Newcastle beating Leicester may ease their woes significantly but they still have to go out and get the job done on the final day of the season.
