Everton set to land Man City flop Jo

Everton are set to land Manchester City striker Jo on a loan deal at Goodison Park, according to the Daily Mail.

The Brazilian striker has failed to live up to expectations at City after moving to Eastlands for £19 million in the summer last year.

Jo arrived at City for a then transfer record, before Robinho joined later that year, but was signed by the club before the arrival of Mark Hughes and it seems the 21-year-old has fallen out of favour under Hughes since failing to make a league appearance in 2009.

Everton boss David Moyes is said to be desperate to land a striker after injuries to Yakubu, Louis Saha and James Vaughan. Tim Cahill has recently had to fill in up front, but with the capture of Jo Moyes will be able to resolve his striking problems before making a decision whether or not to sign the Brazilian forward in the summer on a permanent basis.

Current Bundesliga league leaders Hoffenheim are also said to have shown an interest in the striker after injury to star striker Vedad Ibisevic and there would be no doubt that the surprise German package would be able to afford a permanent transfer for the Brazilian.

Jo has only made six Premier League starts since he joined City last year and doubts were cast on his future after the striker was fined at the end of last year for visiting a nightclub.
