Everton refusing to give up on Zaha deal
Everton will push to sign Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha up until tomorrow's 5pm transfer deadline despite appearing to have had a second, improved bid - after their initial €56.5 million offer - rejected.
Zaha is keen to move but it would be a surprise if Palace allowed him to leave given there is little time for a replacement to be signed.
Everton have proved more successful in their pursuit of a right-back, with a deal agreed with Monaco to take French World Cup winner Djibril Sidibe on loan for the season with an option to buy.
The 27-year-old, who has had a history of injury problems, will undergo a medical today and is expected to provide competition for Seamus Coleman.
Meanwhile, Laurent Koscielny has joined Bordeaux after Arsenal agreed to sell him for around €5 million.
Koscielny was desperate to return to France and refused to go on Arsenal's pre-season tour of the United States in an attempt to force a move.
