NOTW filling the story in heavily, but sounds like the lad is available...http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/sport/football/649916/FERNANDES-TARGETS-EVERTON-RESCUE.html
MANUEL FERNANDES wants a third loan spell at Everton.
The Valencia midfielder is frustrated with a lack of action at the Mestalla and is desperate to play for Portugal in next summer's World Cup finals.
Now free from injury, he was annoyed with coach Unai Emery's decision to bring him on as a substitute in the 91st minute of the weekend draw at Deportivo La Coruna.
It only increased his exasperation with life at the Spanish club and he has instructed his agents to explore the possibility of a loan move during January's transfer window.
The representatives have maintained contact with Everton, sparking speculation that the 23-year-old could be set for another stint on Merseyside.
David Moyes is keen to make more loan additions to his squad to go alongside Landon Donovan but it remains to be seen whether he wants to rescue Fernandes and sign him for a third time, after previous moves to snap him up permanently collapsed.
If Everton do not make a move for the former Benfica ace, other Premier League clubs could take the opportunity to take him on loan.
