PSV Eindhoven make fresh approach to sign Everton ace key player permanently this summer

PSV Eindhoven have made a fresh approach to sign Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite permanently and will take immediate action once they complete a sale, according to reports.

Writing on his personal Twitter account (23 August), journalist Rik Elfrink reports that the Dutch club have already made a fresh approach to “snatch” the youngster from the Toffees after he spent last season on loan in the Eredivisie.

But with Everton keen to keep hold of the young defender, PSV are hoping to sell Ibrahim Sangare and then use the funds to convince them to let him return to Holland.

PSV has not yet forgotten about a reunion with ‘old acquaintance’ Jarrad Branthwaite of Everton,” he wrote.

“The club has made another attempt to snatch him from England.”

VI (23 August) continued to explain the situation in their article, stating that a deal could be unlocked by an expected sale in Eindhoven.

“PSV hopes to take over Branthwaite permanently from Everton, but does not (yet) have the financial resources for this at the moment,” they wrote.

“With the departure of Ibrahim Sangaré, the people of Eindhoven can immediately take action to loosen the defender at Everton.”

Hold on

It’s fair to say that most Everton fans were surprised last summer when Branthwaite was loaned out to a club playing Champions League football after being deemed not good enough for Frank Lampard.

His performances out there were excellent though and it was less of a surprise when they wanted to sign him permanently, but the Toffees made it clear he was valuable and a deal never materialised.

He has since returned to Goodison Park and been offered a new deal, but finds himself behind Michael Keane and James Tarkowski in the pecking order and has yet to sign anything.

PSV are now returning for him and without regular football on Merseyside, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him move on at this point as we are struggling for cash and he clearly isn’t in the plans of Sean Dyche.

But with that said we can’t leave ourselves short and if he were to leave a replacement would no doubt be needed. It’s best for Everton that he stays, but we’ve never been the best in the market so it wouldn’t be a shock to see this one happen.
