Everton concludes two major deals, a midfield legend as a manager, and an ignored midfield talent

A month of concern and then two major uplifting news for the Everton faithful - a manager with legendary status in the world of football, and a top prospect El Clasico rivals were battling for two years ago.

Everton has been without a manager since mid-January when Rafa Benitez was sacked after abysmal results in the six months in charge. After several names were contacted, the man for the mission was picked and it is Frank Lampard.

A man connected with the colour blue of a different club throughout his legendary playing career is back to coaching after a year off since his sacking at Stamford Bridge.

Known for versatility and goalscoring ability, Lampard will have a player with similar ability arriving at Goodison at the same time as him. Manchester United's flop Donny van de Beek is finally departing from Old Trafford where he has been unjustifiably waning.

It seemed at first as if he had all arranged with Crystal Palace, yet perhaps a shorter move to Liverpool was more suitable for him than a haul down to London. DVDB will be arriving on a six-month loan and Everton will be covering his full wages plus a loan fee.

English press claims that Lampard was already instrumental into talking Van de Beek into switching his destination. Even though he isn't yet announced as the official manager. Yet the deal has been made on Friday, after EFC held talks with Vitor Pereira and caretaker Duncan Ferguson. While Wayne Rooney was also prompted but refused. After the second conversation with Lampard, the English legend was picked.

While Donny arrives as a massive reinforcement to in-danger Everton. The club already secured important transfers of Vitaly Mykolenko for €23,500,000 and Nathan Patterson for €14,000,000 for both sides of the pitch. While also loaning in Anwar El Ghazi from Aston Villa.
