A €3m (~£2.4m) move to Lyon has been rumoured by Twitter accounts citing "French news sources".
The French U21 international signed for Everton two years ago for around £900,000 but has struggled to break into Everton's first team over the last couple of seasons, has been squeezed out further by the arrival of Bryan Oviedo and could be eyeing regular football elsewhere.

I don't have the highest opinion of his abilities either but we sill still require someone to come in if we have an injury crisis.

Bargain at 3 million personally.

Who to replace him? Are we really going to miss him. If we have to drop Barkley from the matchday squad to have Gueye in then like v Newcastle he's holding Barkley and hopefully Green back. Take the money and sell up.
032 Posted 03/01/2013 at 21:18:59
Oviedo is more than capable of covering for Pienaar and Baines, so it looks like Gueye isn't needed. Look at his apps this season for a hint.

The lad has had flashes of brilliance (and I use that term liberally), but he's not good enough for our team at the moment unfortunately. We have to be wary of squad numbers though, as we are paper thin as it is.

If we sold Gueye for £2m, Moyes would bring in another gem I feel.
We have Pienaar, Oviedo, Osman, Mirallas, Anichebe and Coleman for the wings if needed. No big deal if Gueye goes and brings in much needed funds.

I'd sign Hitz until the end of the season and make it a priority to bring in Vadis on loan.
Sell Heitinga for at least £4m too if possible.

What will we do now to surprise the opposition!!
155 Posted 04/01/2013 at 09:38:18
Gueye £2.4 million, bite their arm off....
156 Posted 04/01/2013 at 09:42:06
158 Posted 04/01/2013 at 09:51:22
If there is a £2.4m offer than than seems good value for someone who's hardly played for us and Moyes does not seem to have huge faith in.
A bit depressing when you think we probably need to make around £5m a season net from player sales to keep from going under.

I can't imagine that it's something he's determined to do no matter who he has available.

He's 22-23 now, I believe, been here for three years and has yet to play 2-3 games back to back. It's hard to judge the guy on this basis surely. I mean he must show in training what he can do. Also he's guilty of 'left foot syndrome', you know where we take a look at his preferred foot and shove him out wide. It is also worth noting that he's not once played in his preferred position through the middle, just off the front man.
I'd like to see the lad loaned out to a Championship side or even a Wigan-esque club, get a run and then judge him. His confidence must be shot, I mean the 'fans' don't help, on his case if he doesn't perform as well as Pienaar, which let's be fair are big shoes to fill.
I think a lot of these points can be attributed to Naismith also, he's getting stick from all angles and whilst he may look off the pace etc... he is also asking to fill a position that isn't his strongest, being asked to defend more than attack, which must be frustrating for a forward. After two years out the game and then immediately stepping up in class with a different league he's going to look off the boil.
Personally I'd rather judge Naismith this time next year... and Magaye too!
245 Posted 04/01/2013 at 15:13:56
We've always got people saying send him to the Championship and in this case even other Premiership teams(!) without anyone seeming to wonder whether any of these teams would actually want him, or whether they would want him on the same conditions that we would let him go (% of wages paid, length of loan, recall clauses etc).
253 Posted 04/01/2013 at 15:44:38
I mean surely there's clubs out there looking for a former French U21 forward who needs game time to develop? So maybe Moyes won't allow him to leave and wants him to develop with ourselves?

We have a very small squad and we obviously can't fill it with high cost / high earning superstars. Like it or not people have to be realistic and understand that our squad will be padded out with low-cost journeyman players for the foreseeable future. we got him cheap (relatively) and he won't be a high earner.
Haven't been overly impressed with Gueye's performances so far (looked fairly good first half against Norwich at Goodison last season) but some of the comments on here have been overly insulting. If the money can be invested wisely then that will be good for the club; if the next recruit flops we will be no better off. Either way, denigrating someone who doesn't seem to have done anything but try his best benefits nobody.
429 Posted 05/01/2013 at 00:02:10
It was actually the situation with Johnson, and the recruitment of Rodwell that prompted Hodgson to make his comment about potentially having starters in the England team that were not starters for their clubs.
I doubt Mancini will let him go on loan, but even if he were to, I doubt there would be any option on making it permanent.
545 Posted 05/01/2013 at 12:37:18
I just see it all the time with our younger players, with people saying 'just get him out on loan', 'why haven't they sent him on loan' etc when it's not quite that simple. Look at when we did send Shane Duffy to Burnley for example, and he came back with his tail between his legs having hardly kicked a ball. Was that good for his development?
