There is nothing imminent between 777 Partners and Everton regarding a takeover of the club despite reports, according to The Esk.

Writing on his personal Twitter account (12 September), the journalist reports that talk a deal is close to being completed for a full takeover are wide of the mark.

Some reports on Tuesday (12 September) suggest that an announcement could come this week, while Sky Sports report a deal could take “several months” to complete.

“Despite all reports there is nothing imminent with 777 Partners,” he wrote. “I cannot be clearer than that.”

This looks like a big leak and club brief about a deal potentially being close to being done, but those who know better have doubted the consistency of the talks anyway.

There is no doubt that 777 Partners are interested in buying Everton, whether it be a full takeover or partial investment for now with a view to a full takeover later.

But there have been question marks about their financial ability to do so, and until that is answered then there is no way a deal can be close. The Esk has been hugely reliable when it comes to the financial side of the club for a while and he wouldn’t be reporting this if he didn’t believe it to be true.

This is seemingly going to drag on for a while longer, and Everton fans will simply have to just wait and see what is going to happen despite all the smoke and noise.
