Everton cash problems wreck Lonergan deal

Everton's money problems wrecked the signing of Preston North End goalkeeper Andy Lonergan.

Everton's money problems wrecked the signing of Preston North End goalkeeper Andy Lonergan.

The People says Everton boss David Moyes hit a snag over £50,000 as he tries to sign old boy Lonergan from Preston.

Moyes wanted Lonergan as his No.2 and slapped in a £100,000 offer to North End, where he gave the shot-stopper his debut a decade ago.

However, Bill Kenwright has refused to finalise the move because Preston supremo Maurice Lindsay wanted a further 50 per cent on top.
