Former Espanyol defender Mattioni on trial at Everton

Felipe Mattioni has been handed a trial by Everton.


The 26-year-old Brazilian right-back played for the Toffees U21s in their win over Norwich City on Tuesday night as Roberto Martinez continues to cast his eye over the player.

In the 3-1 win, Mattioni conceded a penalty which was converted by James Loza before winning one back himself for Jonjoe Kenny to level for the Toffees.

Mattioni, who has an Italian passport, is a free agent after ending his time with Spanish club Espanyol at the end of last season.

The former Gremio man spent time with AC Milan back in 2009 and has also had a loss stint with Mallorca.
