Defender linked with Goodison move
Everton are closing in on a deal for former Bayern Munich wing back Danijel Pranjic, who is available on a free transfer.
The 31-year-old is available for nothing after his contract ran out at Bayern and he has been strongly linked with a switch to Everton, who look likely to lose Leighton Baines to Manchester United over the summer. The Croatian was watched by David Moyes whilst at Euro 2012 and he looks likely to resurrect a deal that the Blues almost completed in January. Pranjic told Sportske Novosti: "I am honoured that such a successful coach wants to sign me, and would be honoured to play for a club like Everton with such a rich history. "We were very close to completing a deal in January, but then Bayern prevented it going through. I can't say that everything is finished, but next week I'm expecting some concrete developments." Pranjic added: "I'm hungry to play again, to fight with my team-mates for success, to play for the fans. I missed all that sitting on the bench at Bayern. "I'm 31 years old and physically I feel perfect."
