Everton chase Yakubu after landing Beattie

Everton are rumoured to have been given a price of £12m for the Nigerian international, but it is believed that they could prise him away from Fratton Park for a deal worth around £6m.

If this went ahead (and I stress the if), it would represent the largest single burst of transfer expenditure in Everton's history. More news as we get it, but I would file this one under "maybe" for the moment.
