Tim Howard has backed Everton's push for USA teammate Michael Bradley.
The goalkeeper said of the Heerenveen midfielder: "He's just an honest lad and is in the Lee Carsley mould.
"He works tremendously hard and is always there after training, trying to fine tune his game. He's a tough tackler, he's probably got as many international caps as I have got already and if he came to our team, he'd fit right in.
"He's got the right attitude and wants to be a success. I've known him since he was a kid and to see him develop has been fantastic."
