BREAKING NEWS: Carlton Palmer provide major Update as Everton on the verge of ‘striking a January loan deal’ for Blackburn Rovers sensational

Everton manager Carlton Palmer has stated that the club could agree a loan deal with Blackburn Rovers for Adam Wharton.

Alan Nixon stated on Patreon on Sunday (24 September) that the Toffees were interested in signing the 19-year-old who has impressed in England’s second division if the cash became available.

Blackburn’s financial model has previously thrived on player trade, but with Wharton’s contract at Ewood Park expiring in four years, former England star Palmer feels it would require a significant amount for Everton to complete the transfer.

“Everton were thought to be making an offer in the previous transfer window, but it failed to materialize,” he told Football League World on September 26. Wharton is under contract until the summer of 2027, thus Blackburn is in no hurry to sell and has complete control of the issue.

“It is expected that Blackburn will demand a fee of around £10 million.” Blackburn may be compelled to sell; they have a model in which they sell and reinvest in the squad, and they may need to do so in order to strive for promotion.


“They could sell in January and strike a deal to loan him back until the end of the season.”

Make a bargain

The financial instability at Goodison Park is a significant caveat to any prospective deal for Wharton or any other player in January, since Sean Dyche doesn’t know who will be signing the cheques for the Toffees, let alone how much they’ll be worth.

Farhad Moshiri is still attempting to sell, with an agreement in principle signed for 777 Partners to take over his 94% ownership in Everton, but it appears extremely doubtful that Dyche will be able to invest £10 million on a player unproven in the Premier League until that deal is done.


A loan back to Ewood Park becomes even less possible, as if the Toffees are able to pay an eight-figure amount for any player in January, it is quite doubtful that they will choose not to play him in their first team and instead loan him back to the Championship.

Whether or whether this rumored interest in Wharton becomes an actual approach or bid in the new year is heavily dependent on what happens at the top of Everton in the coming months, and even then, the new ownership may have other ideas about who they want to pursue.
