He wasn´t playing in Erreala and they´ve agreed a loan to the toffees, I suppose his high salary has a lot to do with it as well as Gravesend signing for Madrid.

Now it´s even clearer Amorrortu never counted with him, he was just signed to calm people after selling Xabi Alonso. Erreala´s system doesn´t suit him, but I think he could have been useful as false winger or as DM (where he played in PSG) even more now that Erreala was playing with 3 DMs.

With Mendieta and Xabi injured he will be a good addition to our "Basques in the premiership" thread, I suppose Fish will be happy finally having a basque in Everton, although not the most noble one..:eek:

Fish, can you tell us something? Another of your letters to Moyes? :D Apparently Everton have payed around 1 million € for the loan till June and they have an option to sign him for about 4 Millions then (what Erreala payed to Rangers ( :yuck: )) He´s a great player, I can´t believe yet that Amorrortu hasn´t find a place for him. His quality is needed in our midfield. I said in the preseason that I didn´t like his prima-donna behaviour but I was probably wrong, at least here his attitude has been good, even without playing. I hope we will still have the chance to see him playing for us.

Nothing to do with me and my many letters, unless Moyes is only reading the words 'Basque midfielder' and ignoring the word 'Iraola' which I have scrawled all over the page. In green ink.

I'm obviously pleased to have our very own Basque player. I shall be writing him a letter in sub-standard euskera to welcome him, which will no doubt be put in my file at Goodison.

Oh yes, and rest assured I will be writing to the Liverpool Echo (the local paper) every time they refer to him as "Spanish" as I have done with Alonso. Credit to them, they always refer to him as Basque now.

I need to get out a bit more.

Ok, don´t forget to talk him about ´basque defender´ Igor Jauregi for example in you next letter, with a bit of luck he´ll sign Aitor Karanka.
