Finance Expert shares Everton transfer verdict with sales now expected

We’re delighted to welcome football finance expert Dr Daniel Plumley as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Everton

Dan Plumley has insisted that Everton will likely see player exits ramp up after the double signing of Youssef Chermiti and Jack Harrison was confirmed.

The finance expert admitted that the loan move and the £12million spent on the Sporting CP man shows the market that the Toffees are fishing in this summer.

Plumley shared that Everton cannot afford to break the bank and that everything happening so far has the feeling of another tough season in the Premier League.

“Probably,” he exclusively told Goodison News.

“We have spoken about the financial situation at Everton, and I’m sure from a fan perspective it is great to see a couple of new faces through the door, but, one is pretty much free and the other was around £12million.

Look at what other Premier League clubs are spending, look at what some of the clubs that have been relegated are spending.

It’s symptomatic of where Everton are at, and that is the risk in all of this, that they just end up in a position like they were for the last two seasons.

I’m not saying that they should break the bank on transfers because they can’t, and we have seen that.

They are hampered by their financial position at the minute and this is the kind of market they are in, you have to adapt to that. It’s just got the feelings of another tough season.”
