Everton Bid for Altidore

Soccer By Ives notes that Everton Boss David Moyes likes Jozy Altidore enough to make a bid for the young American international, only to be rebuffed by Villareal. Although Altidore is not getting a lot of game time, he is routinely in the game day squad and has a goal for the Yellow Submarine.

I think Jozy staying in Spain is a good thing for him right now. He is getting tutelage from one of the best managers in the world at developing young talent and his play has clearly improved during the times he is on the field. a move to England will simply upset that development at this stage. At 19, Altidore has a long career ahead of him.
