Toffees Deny Reo-Coker Interest

Everton assistant-manager has denied that Everton have made an offer for West Ham captain Nigel Reo-Coker,

"I am sure most clubs would like to have him but I am not sure why he has been linked to us. It has certainly not come from our end."

The story seems to have emanated from Reo-Coker's 'advisor' Tony Finnigan. He informed Sky Sports and The Sun that he was unaware of any approach from Everton for his player and of course the media responded to that by reporting that Everton were interested in buying the player. Furthermore the media are now reporting Everton's denial as a confirmation that they are interested in the player.

Obviously Tony Finnigan is only likely to make serious money from his client if he is transferred, it is in his interest then to create distrust between Reo-Coker and West Ham. For the life of me I can't understand why the media would print his rubbish when there is a bigger story in reporting the truth; Reo-Coker is trying to engineer a move away from West Ham.
