Everton may still sign Thomas Hitzlsperger, but only if and when he is fit.
David Moyes confirmed that the German international will continue to train with Everton for a second week.
The former West Ham midfielder has been at Finch Farm since the start of last week and he now needs to show his fitness to get a contract.
Moyes said: "It is going to be a while until we are able to make a decision. He is building his fitness. He is enjoying doing the football work and we will step his work up next week but there will be no quick decision on that."
