Arnaut Danjuma, who is on loan from Everton, has an agent named Michael-Moses Jarman, and he has disclosed that negotiations are taking place with Lyon, a Ligue 1 team, over a potential January move.

Jarman said that there have been discussions regarding his departure because of his lack of playing time under Sean Dyche, and he insisted that the next three weeks of the transfer market would be fascinating.

Danjuma’s parent team Villarreal would have to recall him from his loan at Everton and approve a new one with the French team in order for him to transfer to Lyon. Those talks are still ongoing.



Jarman was speaking live on talkSPORT [9 January, 12:51] as he revealed: “There are conversations ongoing. He’s happy, he’s settled at Everton, we’ve got a contract with Everton, so it’s only respectful that that’s where the conversation stands.

“But he’s not getting his minutes at the moment under Mr Dyche, and what’s best for his career is to play football.

“There has been interest and conversations are ongoing with Olympique Lyonnais, it’s been reported in the media so I’ll confirm it. It’ll be an interesting three weeks.”

An exit is edging closer

Amid plenty of speculation over his future at Goodison Park, it now looks almost inevitable that Danjuma will depart in January having failed to live up to the expectation around his eagerly anticipated spell under Dyche.

When he arrived in the summer, having previously turned down a move to Everton in favour of a short-term loan with Tottenham, there were high hopes for what he could do, but just three Premier League starts later he is looking to quit already.

The fact his agent spoke so openly about it on talkSPORT suggests the deal is further along the line than some may think, and an exit for Danjuma now appears set to come within the following weeks.

Whether this means Everton will be pushed to enter the transfer market in pursuit of a new player, with their depth already lacking particularly in the wide areas and likely to become even shorter, is unknown but their hand may be forced.
