Moyes set to join the Kamil race
By Alan Nixon and Colin Wood

Everton boss David Moyes has switched his search for a new goalkeeper to Slovakia's Kamil Contofalsky as his vain chase of Mart Poom nears an unsatisfactory conclusion.

Kamil Contofalsky: Toffees' target
(PhilCole/Allsport)
Moyes last night sent goalkeeping specialist Chris Woods and senior coach Jimmy Lumsden from the club's Austrian training camp to look at Contofalsky in action for his club Bohemians Prague in France.

Contofalsky is available at around 1.2million and has impressed other clubs in recent weeks, with Southampton watching him at a recent Bohemians game as well as at Le Havre last night.

However, Everton may step in quickly for the giant keeper who has a big reputation in both the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and is similar to Poom in many ways, with his bravery and agility.

Moyes, normally cautious in the transfer market, will listen to a report from Woods when he returns from the journey today, although other homework has been done and the results so far are positive.

Contofalsky has had run-ins with his club over disciplinary problems in the past but these have been put in perspective by Everton as they check out his background.

Moyes - who last week sounded out Arsenal over their reserve goalkeeper Richard Wright without success - is at the end of his tether over the Poom deal, with Derby County sticking to their demands for an overall fee of around 7m.

That has annoyed Poom, who said last night: 'I am very flattered by Everton's interest and like every other player, I want to play in the Premiership. Derby's valuation is too much in the current market situation.

'Everton have made a very good offer and Derby are no longer a Premiership club, though, of course, they have the right to ask for that much money.'

Everton have also been linked with Fenerbahce No.1 Rustu Recber, who has already caught the eye of Arsenal and Manchester United. The Turks have made it clear they are ready to sell after losing the title to Istanbul rivals Galatasaray.

But his top-drawer performances in helping Turkey reach the World Cup semi-finals see him valued in the same bracket as Poom, which would all but put the 29-year-old out of Everton's reach.

Moyes had some joy last night as 16-year-old prospect Wayne Rooney and Kevin McLeod both hit hat-tricks as Everton cantered to a 10-2 friendly win over Austria's SC Weiz.

PAULMAY, DV..... maybe we should try and entice our Asian posters on Xtratime to visit this temp Everton forum. Seems logical now that we have Chinese sponsors, and the possibility of a few Chinese players added to our squad

Well Bluenoses, the omens are looking good for you, well at least in terms of a forum!

The way I see it is we have 3/4 very core posters for the Everton Forum.

Fred Elliot - the manc bluenose

Here is my challenge to you guys (and the rest of the advocates for a blue forum), we'll set up the forum, and we'll come back and check on you in say two to three months. I'd hope to see by that point a few more new blue faces.

The start of the season should be your easiest time to attract new fans It's the time when you have the same chance of the title as everyone else

i like to see the brits learned to speak Ke Jian.that might be very fun. as for the chinese player im afraid that just a vase for the sponsor's contract. i would reflect Inamoto.he's even much better.what arsenal did to him last season?

many chinese will join the forum,after all,they work for chinese sponser in some senses.

Everton Youngster Rewarded With Contract Extension
News Archive

Chadwick (L) has been handed a massive boost (Allsport)
07/18/2002. Everton youngster Nick Chadwick has signed a contract extension at Goodison Park.

The 19-year old broke into the first team at the tail end of last season and impressed new boss David Moyes, who has now rewarded him with an extra year on his contract, keeping him at the club until 2005.

Speaking to the club's official web site, Chadwick said, "Obviously I'm delighted. I had two years left on my previous contract, but I made a bit of progress last season and that's been rewarded with another year on my contract. When the new manager came in, obviously everyone had their doubts, but to be offered a new contract under the new manager ensures I go into the new season full of confidence."

Razor you and others like you have been saying that for 100 years now, and every season we hear the same old song and at the end of the season three other teams end up going down and we are still here, and will be for the next 100 years.

Thats good news Carson. Everton need to keep its youngsters at the club. Chadwick had a great run at the end of last season and if he can improve a little then he has a bright future at Goodison.
