Everton complete loan deals

Said has already played for Everton during the pre season tour of Scotland.
Both players are awaiting work permits but these are expected by the end of the week. They could make their first team debuts on January 12th, although McBride is more likely to provide cover for Kevin Campbell, rather than being a first teamer himself.

Said has already had one trial at Goodison but a deal could not be completed over the summer. David Moyes will be pleased to have the vesritile player, who can play in either defence or midfield.

McBride was one of Team America's stars during the world cup. He has previously worked with Moyes at Preston and as a tall strong striker he has clearly been brought in to provide cover for Kevin Campbell.
