Moyes closes on Irish striker
Friday 23 December 2011
The Cliftonville striker Rory Donnelly looks to be Everton-bound after David Moyes' club made a formal offer for the Northern Ireland U21 international that is believed to be much higher than Swansea's bid of £100,000 last week.
Cliftonville want a deal for the 19-year-old, who has scored 17 goals this season, to be sorted out today.
Liverpool have also registered their interest in Donnelly, while Arsenal's representative Steve Morrow attended Wednesday's Northern Ireland Premiership game with a view to seeing him in action – but the striker did not come off the bench.
A scout from Leicester was also present at the match.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
