Oh No, Not Jo

Oh No, Not Jo

Everton manager David Moyes is expected to cut short Brazilian striker Jo's loan deal and return the 22-year-old to Manchester City.

Everton signed Jo on a season-long loan after Mark Hughes decided he didn't want him at Eastlands, but as expected, Jo has been a flop at Goodison Park after failing to score in 15 Premier League games. Put simply, Jo is now surplus to requirements.

Jo was signed from CSKA Moscow for £18million but following a mere nine first team appearances Mark Hughes did the honourable thing and offloaded the free-luncher. If as expected and Jo returns to Manchester then perhaps he'll become one of the most expensive Premier League flops in history.

Jo has another 18 months left on his City contract.

It's a complete bull***** story by some bored low level tabloid no mark, who has taken one look at his scoring record this season and decided he's been a flop. When in fact his all round game has actually improved this season okay the goals have dried up but we have played our best football with him in the side. And with yakubu going on his January Holidays to the ACN, Anichebe injured and Saha and Vaughans injury records I can't see Moyes sending him back at all

I thought it was only us that had that trouble with the hacks of the press EM.

they can only cut short the loan period if City agree to it. Check FA regs.

I'm pretty sure if we said we didn't want him any more and he wouldn't be getting games here City would agree to take him back, after all we've paid a loan fee and aren't paying all his wages so City may as well take him back and sell him if we didn't want him at no real loss to them. But I just can't see why we would ship him out. And Buzz, Jo is still one of your players (no chance of us paying the fee you'd want come may) so really it is still your trouble with the hacks!

I didn't think you would EM, he really is bobbins and may do well on the continent or in Scotland like Sam harris, but he definately isn't a premiership player, we will be lucky to get £2m for him.
