Everton are yet to offer terms to trialist Thomas Hitzlsperger.

The Liverpool Echo says the 30-year-old is still training with the Blues at Finch Farm but contrary to rumours on Merseyside yesterday, he has not put pen to paper on a contract until January.

David Moyes is in no rush to decide on whether to recruit the player who has 52 Germany caps, especially with the news earlier this week that Darron Gibson is nearer to a first team return.
