Another deal that didn’t happen

One of the narratives which gets played up after the close of the transfer window are stories of the deals which never happened.

On those lines, Dynamo Kiev president Ihor Surkis has this weekend been telling the Ukrainian media how Everton tried to sign Andriy Yarmolenko on transfer deadline day.

Over the summer there were claims that 26-year-old Yarmolenko was refusing to play for Dynamo as he was seeking a move out the club, however that never materialised.

So what happened with Everton’s approach?

According to Ihor Surkis (as reported by dt.ua), it came far, far too late:

Everton submitted a bid for Yarmolenko 1 hour and 15 minutes prior to the deadline.

I was satisfied with the transfer price but we did not have time to even draw up a contract.

I was satisfied with the offer as long as Andriy was.

Transfer bids cannot be submitted that late.
