Everton confident of signing Manchester City defender on loan today

Everton are confident that they can strike a loan deal for Manchester City centre-back Eliaquim Mangala by today’s transfer deadline.

The 26-year-old has fallen further down the pecking order following the club-record signing of Aymeric Laporte, meaning Pep Guardiola now has six available options at centre-back, with two of them – Mangala and young Tosin Adarabioyo – available for loan today.

Newcastle and Valencia have also expressed interest in Mangala, but Rafa Benitez’s side have so far baulked at the loan fee and a return to Spain with Valencia seems unlikely.
