Everton are believed to be watching the situation of Manchester City pair Craig Bellamy and Shaun Wright-Phillips.

Wales veteran Bellamy has made no secret of his desire to leave Eastlands following his loan spell with Cardiff City last season whilst Wright-Phillips is seldom used by Roberto Mancini and is looking for regular football elsewhere.

Just yesterday, Bolton's Zat Knight said Wright-Phillips would be prepared to depart City so he can simply play first team football and the Liverpool Echo suggests that the Toffees are showing interest.

Bellamy has already been the subject of interest from Everton boss David Moyes but decided to join Cardiff on loan instead although the Scottish tactician may return for the 31-year old.
