Porto's Fernando turned down Everton despite work permit hearing

Everton were forced to admit defeat late on transfer deadline day for Porto midfielder Fernando.

The Daily Mail says Everton failed in their bid to sign Porto midfielder Fernando in a £15m deal, despite attending the Brazilian’s work permit hearing in London earlier in the day.

The move collapsed after he expressed a wish to join a Champions League club.
