'Der Hammer' heads for Everton

19 October 2012 01:06

Everton have signed German midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger on a short-term contract until January, subject to international clearance.

The former Aston Villa and West Ham player has been without a club since leaving Wolfsburg in the summer.

Everton confirmed the deal on Friday afternoon and are hopeful that because the contract was signed before Friday's midday deadline he will be available to David Moyes for Sunday's Premier League clash at QPR.
