Everton ready to snap-up German international
Sky Sports are reporting that former Germany international Thomas Hitzelsperger is training with Everton in a bid to earn a contract with the Merseysiders.
Released by Wolfsburg last season, Hitzelsperger is no stranger to the Premier League having enjoyed spells with Aston Villa and, more recently, West Ham.
Recurring injuries haven’t helped the player but it is hoped he can return to a decent level of fitness training with Everton.
Toffees assistant Steve Round is impressed with the player and is hopeful that he will become a part of the Blues squad.
“I have been very pleased with him. Thomas is a long way off playing but we have given him the opportunity to come in and it is up to him now,” he said.
“We will assess him over the next couple of weeks. He seems a really good lad and I don’t think I have seen him without a smile on his face.
Round added: “What will determine whether he gets a contract is his fitness. He has had a bad injury and we would want to see that he could sustain training.”
