Hugo Rodallega priced out of Everton move
The huge pay demands of Colombian Hugo Rodallega have seen him price himself out of a move to Everton.
Rodallega, who is a free agent having left Wigan Athletic at the end of last season, held talks with David Moyes but was asking for £70,000 a week, which would have made him one of the highest-paid players in the club's history. Everton are unwilling to break their pay structure to sign a striker who scored two goals in 21 appearances for Wigan last season but who proved his Premier League ability in previous campaigns.
Fulham are also interested in him, having missed out on Russian striker Pavel Pogrebnyak, who opted to join Reading despite his successful loan spell at Craven Cottage last season. Rodallega was Wigan's top goalscorer in his first full season at the club after signing from Mexican side Necaxa for £4.5m in 2009.
