Everton have been provided with a financial lifeline over the last few months by the US investment group as they have given a succession of loans to keep the club afloat.

Their latest injection of £15 million comes as there are stories that other people are possibly interested in making an offer to take over the Toffees.

As we all know, 777 Partners agreed to buy out Farhad Moshiri back in September but are still waiting to see of the authorities will give them the green light.

They have apparently got past a few of the hurdles but there is still no certainty about how long it will be before a final decision is made.

The issue over whether or not the US group will get the go-ahead has been another long-running saga alongside the points deduction controversy, which has had such a massive adverse impact on the Blues season.

Fortunately, despite a dreadful barren run of thirteen matches Everton have recently just about managed to right the sinking ship on the pitch with the last two wins, which have almost secured Premier League survival.

Victory this evening against Brentford at Goodison Park will basically seal it, and then the Toffees can begin to think about how they are going to re-build and avoid another dreadful campaign like the last two now have also been.

There is talk about what plans are in place for moving forward this summer with Sean Dyche and Director of Football Kevin Thelwell thinking about what they will do.

But, any hopes of trying to look forward and hope to see sustained improvement cannot happen without the issue of the ownership being sorted out.

If there are any others interested in owning Everton then they will need to make a move very soon.

Even if another owner or group were to show their hand, given how long it has taken 777 to get this far would they be able to get a deal done soon enough for the Blues to start re-building this summer?

All we can hope for is that somehow this whole situation gets resolved very quickly and finally the Toffees management can put the right plans in place for that desperately needed sustained improvement.
