Strange but true.
Ex-Hearts keeper Craig Gordon has had a bit of a nightmare spell in the Premier League since joining Sunderland in 2007.
A series of injuries largely sidelined him until he was released from his contract after the 2011/12 season.
But despite flopping at Sunderland, there are those who believe the 29-year-old still has much to offer. One of those appears to be Everton manager David Moyes, who confirmed in a post-match press conference that he is seeking someone not just to cover for Tim Howard, but compete for his starting place.
Howard has been the object of some disenchantment at Goodison, and the Liverpool Echo suggests Gordon could be the right man to challenge for the job.
A motivated and grateful keeper with undeniable skill and a great deal to prove could, under the right medical care and the mentorship of David Moyes, be a brilliant move.
