Brazilian striker Jo could be offered another loan move away from Manchester City as he attempts to establish himself in the Premier League. The reports first surfaced in the Daily Star Sunday and has been picked up by the Manchester Evening News this morning.

The centre forward, who arrived at the City of Manchester Stadium amidst great fanfare last summer for £18m, spent the second half of the season at Goodison Park having failed to make an impact under Mark Hughes. But a permanent move to Everton has already been ruled out by David Moyes, who is preferring to spend his relatively modest transfer budget on other targets.

Roy Hodgson is believed to be keen on bringing Jo to Craven Cottage to bolster Fulham’s squad for their Europa League campaign. A new striker is thought to be high on Hodgson’s list of priorities and the Brazilian, who notched five goals in 12 league games for the Toffees at the tail end of last season, would probably be keen on another opportunity in the Premier League.
