    Council cash may not build Everton Stadium after all.​

    Liverpool Labour Mayor J​oe Anderson ​is suddenly hinting for the first time that ​he may NOT be lending ​Everton Football Club ​£280 million of Council ​funds ​to build a new ​Dockside ​stadium.

    In a podcast this week, the 'True Blue' Mayor ​who has been accused of wanting to push the Council into the Red to satisfy his own footie favoritism ,​has admitted that Everton ​may well look elsewhere for the money​. -although he ​still ​firmly believes​ the loan would be 'the right thing to do'​.

    ​Whatever the reason, it appears that the Everton ​loan from public funds ​is clearly not a ​'​done deal​'

    "We are not there yet​." says Joe Anderson, "​ because Everton want to make sure that they get the best deal, they are talking to other people.​" ​He plans to get back a £7 million per year payback on the loan from Everton into the Liverpool City coffers from the proposed Braml​e​y Moor​e Dock​ development​.

    ​"​If they want to use us - they may well turn around and say no, but if they want to use us, I think absolutely yes we should."

    ​Mayor Anderson acknowledges that ​Everton's majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri might also make the club an offer qwhich would thwart his own bid to use council funds.​

    He said: "I look at his portfolio and he's got massive interests all over the world, plenty of people in construction, investors who talk to him and deals he does in different countries - I guess these people will be talking to him.​"

    ​But the lifelong Everton fan admit​s that he would be ​"​hugely disappointed​"​ if the club did go another way when looking for investment​.
