Everton hero Sharp: Yakubu can recapture best

Yakubu Aiyegbeni can still have a future at Everton, insists former Toffees star Graeme Sharp.

Sharp maintains it's not too late for Yakubu to resurrect his once promising career.

"It's plain to see from the start of the season, and how results have stuttered along, that Everton are lacking a cutting edge in the final third," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"Then you've got a natural goal scorer like The Yak who hasn't played yet. He is a fantastic asset to have and you can't afford to write him off yet.

"I would have been disappointed to see him leave Everton this summer. I can genuinely still see a place for him in this side and I can still see him having an impact on this season.

"He's the type of player who can score scrappy goals. It'll got his backside and go in. He just knows where the right place is to score. With Louis Saha liking to drop deep and join up play, there's room for someone who can be a real predator in the box."
