Everton’s have failed in their attempt to sign Inter’s Andy van der Meyde, after the Dutch winger revealed he wants to stay in Italy.

The 24-year-old’s agent Chiel Dekker said: “Everton were interested in signing Van der Meyde but they did not make an official offer to the club.

“He had a difficult first season at Inter but he is looking forward for the coming campaign,” said Dekker.

Everton are also considering a move for Red Star Belgrade defender Milan Dudic.

Everton manager David Moyes said: “We have had a look at Dudic, but whether we’ll do anything is another matter.”
