Royal Blue: What West Ham's interest in Andre Gomes means for Everton and what might have been for Ronald Koeman

Tuesday, 4 June

After a quiet few weeks since the end of the Premier League season, things are start to happen at Everton, and just after your latest Royal Blue podcast was recorded, captain Phil Jagielka announced he would be leaving the club after 12 years of sterling service once his contract expires. Host Phil Kirkbride had quizzed Dave Prentice, Adam Jones and Gavin Buckland on why it was taking so long to get a resolution on the long-serving defender's future. But while we now have that, the question over whether fellow Blues stalwart Leighton Baines will sign a new deal remains unanswered. Why that is the case is discussed here, as is West Ham United's pursuit of Andre Gomes. Should Everton be worried? Also on the agenda is the club's apparent desire to appoint a certain Luis Boa Morte as Marco Silva's new number two before talks turns to Phil's recent interview with former Blues boss Ronald Koeman. Did Koeman deserve more time at Goodison? And would he have fared better under the club's current structure? Whatever your thoughts on Koeman - and let's face it, sympathy for the Dutchman is in short supply - it makes for interesting listening. Enjoy.
