Everton clinch deal for Preston keeper Lonergan

Everton are planning a £750,000 bid for Preston North End goalkeeper Andy Lonergan.

The Mirror says Lonergan is heading for Goodison today and will start training with the Toffees but will not be able to play for them until next season.

Moyes gave Lonergan his debut at Preston a decade ago and has lined him up as competition for first choice Tim Howard.

Lonergan is for sale at Preston who will gladly tee up the deal now - and are to get Everton reserve Iain Turner on loan in exchange.

Turner could go straight into Preston's side, putting Lonergan in cotton wool to avoid injury and make sure there are no snags before his switch to Everton.
