Ex-toffee targeting return to Everton
Tim Cahill is said to eyeing a return to Goodison Park in the Major League Soccer off season, says the Liverpool Echo. The Australian made the switch to New York Red Bulls in the summer but has revealed he would be in favour of a return to Merseyside in January to keep his fitness in check after New York’s play off defeat to DC United.
Cahill has made no secret of his love of the Toffee’s and said, despite the deal being out of his hands, he would relish a temporary return to the Premier League.
The 32 year old said:
“I know I have a lot more to offer.
“The main thing is that I get to enjoy to MLS but I also get the chance of joining back up in the Premier League and playing in the best league in the world.
“There is no shadow of a doubt, I am eager to come back. Hopefully something can be done (with Everton). It would be nice but it is not down to me.
“I have to respect that sometimes the ship has sailed.
“I am so happy for Everton and nobody more than the chairman and manager whose rewards are starting to show. The biggest thing I miss is the derby. There are two great teams in one city and when I watch the derby it gives me goosebumps.”
