Everton pick up £1m from Norwich’s promotion

Monday, 20 May, 2019 18comments  |  Jump to last
Norwich City's return to the Premier League has been a boon to Everton's coffers.

The Blues will receive £1m as the Canaries' promotion triggered a clause that was part of the agreement that saw Steven Naismith transfer between the two clubs for £8.5m in 2016.

The Scot has, however, been released by the Canaries and is now a free agent.

I remember when he scored 3 against Chelsea. It was a beauty.

Kenwright has already accounted for it with the Arteta money under 'Operating Costs' 🤣

Mike G, he's doing a lot better for us than Sandro, and earning us money, and he's not even here. :-)

Steven, remember that too, it was the 'perfect hat-trick' if recollection is right, one left peg, one right peg and one headed goal.

He will also be fondly remembered at Everton, for the work, at his own expense, he did for the homeless. A man who never forgot his roots, and didn't try to live above his station. While all others were driving to training in their Porsches and Ferraris, Nais had one of the old style Minis. Great guy and a decent human being.

We can put this towards triggering Mbappe's release clause.

Respect to whoever put that clause in his contract, Nais has been on loan at Hearts for the best part of 18 months!

Agree with that, Naismith gave his all and was well liked and respected.

£1M ain't much in today's game, but any positive financial news is welcome.

As someone who regularly pulls people up "Silly Comments"
"Nais finally scores for us" is about as silly as it gets!

As the very next Poster hastily reminded you I can vividly
remember the "Perfect Hat Trick" he scored against Chelsea aswell.

What Everton do you watch????

To be fair to Mike, when you see a joke, you should go for it!
