McSheffrey takes on Everton on Saturday, revealing that he might have been lining up for David Moyes's men had things worked out differently as a teenager.

"Not many people know that I had the chance to sign for Everton when I was about 14," he told the Sunday Mercury. "I just went up there for a few games, did well and they offered me schoolboy forms.

"But I decided to stay at Coventry because they were offering me an apprenticeship and the promise of signing a professional deal when I was 17, so I've no regrets."
