Everton want to sign Southampton defender
Everton are interested in signing Southampton defender Jose Fonte according to Sky Sports News HQ Transfer Centre.
Aston Villa are set to hold talks with the Portuguese defender, but Everton are also in the hunt as they look for experienced back up for John Stones and Phil Jagielka.
31 year old Fonte has seen a number of his defensive partners leave Saint Marys but he has cemented himself as a mainstay of the team leading by example.
Fonte has had a varied career, but really excelled since joining Southampton.
Would Fonte be a good signing?
