Everton Accept BVB’s £2.5m Lindner Bid


Everton have accepted a £2.5m bid from Borussia Dortmund for goalkeeper Heinz Lindner. It’s widely-expected that BVB’s current second-choice ‘keeper Mitch Langerak will leave during the summer after expressing disappointment at his lack of starts (15 from 45).

23 year-old Lindner, capped by his country, is currently on loan at Southampton after signing for Everton from Austria Vienna at the start of last season. Representatives from BVB have flown to England and discussed terms with the player and his agent and a deal looks likely to be completed later this week.
