Royal Blue: The return of Andre Gomes and what next for Everton's transfer window

There's an unsurprising theme in this week's special midweek Royal Blue podcast. Everton completed the signing of Portuguese midfield maestro Andre Gomes late Tuesday and host Sam Carroll acted swiftly to pull together a crack team of pundits to discuss the transfer. The ECHO's Head of Sport Dave Prentice is joined by Everton reporter Adam Jones and Paul Wheelock as the guests wax lyrical about Gomes' potential at Goodison Park. As well as the bonus of securing a cut-price £22m deal for the 25-year-old, the importance of trusting Marco Silva, Marcel Brands and Bill Kenwright at the negotiating table is discussed, as well as who will be next through the doors at Finch Farm. Kurt Zouma's name crops up, naturally, while the future of Morgan Schneiderlin and several Everton misfits are all pondered. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
