Updated Samuel Eto'o's switch to Sampdoria is still not official despite the fact that the veteran striker has now completed a medical and attended the Genoa club's draw with Palermo today draped in his new team's scarf. Everton have announced that they expect the transfer to be completed tomorrow.
FA Youth Cup 4th Round: Everton 1 - 1 Southampton (aet)
Everton's U18s are out of the FA Youth Cup at the Fourth Round stage after losing on penalties at Goodison Park. The Young Blues were goalless at half time having hit the woodwork just before the break but they fell behind to Kyle Clinton's goal early in the second half. Michael Donohue fired home a late equaliser that took the tie to extra time and then a shootout.
Roberto Martinez says that he would be "very surprised" if there were any major changes to the Everton squad between now and the transfer deadline at the end of month. The manager retains his faith in the players at his disposal and he hints that the possible departure of Samuel Eto'o would the only significant move in or out of the club.
Everton's dismal record since mid-December extended to just one win in 13 as they failed to find their way through an entrenched West Brom defence. Kevin Mirallas' missed penalty shortly before half time was as close as they came to scoring on a frustrating night at Goodison Park.
