The Scot was signed with much fanfare by Sunderland for a staggering £9m five years ago but left the Stadium of Light as a free agent this past summer having failed to live up to the hype.
A number of clubs are said to be interested in picking him up on a free transfer and, with Jan Mucha's contract up at the end of the season, Moyes may be tempted to bring Gordon to Goodison.

He is evidently crap now and really injury prone, but he used to be a very good keeper.
If Moyes can get him back to that standard, then it would be a fantastic buy, he's as good, if not better than Howard, when Sunderland first bough him.
But that's a massive if, but it doesnt seem much of a gamble if he's only a back up and I'm guessing he would be on low wages.
Interesting one though, surely better than Mucha, but I have a feeling its another stop-gap

He's only 29, and if his knee has healed and he can get some U-21 games in, he could be great to have.

Sounds a bit like they are stretching for a story in the: it's coming up to January, let's fill up the column inches with transfer rumour rubbish.
The only bright aspect to the sorry performance on Saturday was the complete absence of Coleman. Nowhere near good enough as a defender.
Let's get a RB!

I think Howard's getting some unfair stick. Some of the saves he's made this season have been world class. He could've done better last game, but come on — JH marking Bassong!

Although, as much as I don't really care for the guy while admiring him as a 'keeper, I do think that Moyes should have plucked Allan McGregor from the Rangers debacle (incidentally, the 'keeper who took Gordon's spot in the national team.) I think he'd definitely be keeping Howard out by now. We just really need to stop leaking silly goals now, and a 'keeper who firmly decides whether he'll stay on his line or come for a cross would be a good start.

I can't really see a negative with this story, if true... Gordon was a talented goalie, who had a bad run of injuries. He is a good age, and a six-month contract with a view to an extension seems prudent.
