Premier League champions Leicester City have hatched a plan to send Everton the Steve Walsh who used to play centre-half for them under Martin O’Neill, we can exclusively reveal.
Sources have indicated that the Foxes, cunning, will drive their former club captain over to Goodison Park, hand him over to Ronald Koeman and say “there you go – Steve Walsh”.
The newly brewstered Toffees had been hoping to agree a deal for the Steve Walsh who served as Claudio Ranieri’s assistant manager and is credited with discovering Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and N’Golo Kanté.
But Football Burp understands that Leicester have privately decided to take advantage of the fact that no one knows what that Steve Walsh looks like anyway.
Steve Walsh, the one that Everton want but won’t get, has been described as “a bit like you on Football Manager when you signed Daniel Braaten, Tonton Zola Moukoko and Cherno Samba for buttons, except he did it all in real life”.
Steve Walsh, the one that Everton don’t want but shall soon be receiving, is famous for being a former team-mate of genuine superstars like Steve Guppy and Gerry Taggart.
Steve Walsh declined to comment, as did Steve Walsh.
