English Premier League club Everton have chosen to visit the USA rather than travel down under.

English Premier League club Everton have chosen to visit the USA rather than travel down under.

The Toffees will face an Major League Soccer All-Star team on July 29 in Salt Lake City instead, preferring not to come to Western Australia for a match against A-League club Perth Glory.

“Everton is an elite European club that features many world-class players, including former MLS standout Tim Howard, who will challenge our unbeaten record against English Premier League teams in the MLS All-Star game series,” MLS commissioner Don Garber said in a statement.

The Glory have finalised a deal to play newly-promoted Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers whilst Fulham are still in negotiations over a proposed trip to the west.
