Everton manager David Moyes has revealed that he is completely in the dark over recent reports that Egyptian International Emad Meteb is set for a January switch to Goodison Park, with the Toffees boss claiming to have never heard of the striker, who plays for Al-Ittihad.
Meteb’s agent Mohamed Hamid had recently claimed that his client was to join the Merseyside club in a £2million deal in January, with it claimed that talks had already been held between the two parties about a proposed move to the Premier League.
Hamid said: “I travelled to England a week ago to agree on the final details of the contract with Everton. We agreed on everything. Emad was informed about the course of negotiations, and he is glad about it.”
However, Moyes is stunned by the comments made by Meteb’s agent and has declared that although he might have seen Meteb play there are no talks ongoing to bring the Egyptian to the Premiership.
“I don't know anything about it. I've never heard of him,” Moyes said in the Liverpool Daily Post.
“I might have seen him play, but the name doesn't mean anything to me.”
