Everton are being linked with a move for Manchester United keeper Tim Howard.
Everton are being linked with a close-season move for Manchester United's USA international keeper Tim Howard.
Toffees boss David Moyes is keen to begin his rebuilding and has already released veteran striker Duncan Ferguson.
With Richard Wright being tipped to leave Goodison Park and Nigel Martyn at the back end of his career, the Scot is seeking keeping reinforcements.
Howard is currently second choice to Edwin van der Sar at Old Trafford and Moyes is hoping to snap up the keeper on a season-long loan.
It remains to be seen whether a deal can be done before the World Cup with Howard due to link up with Bruce Arena's squad.
United paid just over £2 million for Howard's services in 2003 and may seek a similar fee if he joins Everton permanently.
Should Howard depart for The Toffees, Ben Foster could return to United as number two following a successful season on loan with Watford.
