Everton approach Manchester United for Tom Heaton

Everton have indicated their interest in signing goalkeeper Tom Heaton from Manchester United this summer, as per a Daily Mirror report.

The Toffees are keen on adding players to their squad to replace those who have left, including back-up goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, who left upon the expiry of his contract last month. Manager Sean Dyche wants to have a quality second-choice goalkeeper to deputise for Jordan Pickford.

Everton have approached Manchester United for 37-year-old goalkeeper Heaton, who played with Dyche in their time together at Burnley. The Toffees are keen to strike a bargain for the England international to move to Goodison Park this summer.

Heaton is under contract at Old Trafford until 2024, having been at the club since 2021. He has, however, only made three appearances in his time at the club and will be keen for more playing time.

Everton set to trigger Manchester United goalkeeper domino with Tom Heaton bid

Manchester United have undergone a drastic change in their goalkeeper roster this summer with long-serving goalkeeper David De Gea leaving the club after 12 years. They also saw Jack Butland return to his parent club after his loan spell. Selling Heaton would mean that the Red Devils will be without any of their goalkeepers from last season.

The Red Devils should have no problem with selling Heaton as they are closing in on deals for two goalkeepers, Andre Onana and youngster Zion Suzuki.

Everton boss Dyche will be keen to have his trusted lieutenant rejoin the side this summer and team up with his former Burnley teammates James Tarkowski, Michael Keane and Dwight McNeil, all of whom play for the Toffees.
