Imps Locked In Talks With Toffees

There is a possibility that arrangements could be made prior to the transfer deadline, 5.00pm on 28th March.

Imps Assistant Manager, Keith Alexander revealed in today's Lincolnshire Echo, that “We have been talking to them about a couple of players, and hopefully, we can get something sorted there.”

The link-up with Everton provides Lincoln City Football Club with the only feasible option as to bringing new players into the club. Alexander reluctantly admitted - “We haven't even got the money to take people from clubs on loan because we would have to pay them while they were here and we can't afford to do that.”

However, the growing relationship between the two clubs opens a door. The prospect of Everton's younger talent arriving at Sincil Bank is attainable and is more importantly, affordable. Any youngsters who do make the journey from Merseyside to Lincolnshire will do so at no cost, because Lincoln's friends at Goodison Park will cover the wages of the player.

Blues midfield man, Damien Curran (20) could be a player under consideration. The left sided midfielder, who has appeared for the reserve side on several occasions this season, is on trial at Division Three Cheltenham Town this week. Curran has been a professional at Goodison Park for the past two years but has yet to come into consideration for the first team.

Planet Imp will have much more on this initial story later today...
