Odds drop on Everton signing England keeper

Everton have become favourites to sign England goalkeeper Joe Hart, with Sky Bet slashing their odds to make them nearly evens to buy the shot stopper.

Hart was dropped by new boss Pep Guardiola for the opening day of the season, as Man City narrowly defeated Sunderland 2-1 at the Etihad. Jermaine Defoe beat Willy Caballero to level the scores for the Black Cats before City won the game.

Everton have already signed a new ‘keeper this summer, bringing in Martin Stekelenburg, who featured in their 1-1 draw with Spurs on Saturday. The Dutchman pulled off a number of good saves to earn Ronald Koeman a point in his first game in charge.

And whilst the Toffees have become favourites to sign Joe Hart, he is still odds on to stay at City, with Sky Bet offering 8/15 for the Premier League winner to remain at the Etihad.

But the England keeper won’t want to play number two at City, with many wondering if a move away to Goodison Park could happen.
