Everton are right to sell Tim Cahill, say Goal.com readers

The midfielder is on the verge of a move to New York Red Bulls after the Toffees agreed a fee with the American club and poll voters have backed David Moyes' decision
Goal.com readers have backed Everton's decision to allow Tim Cahill to leave the club to join New York Red Bulls.

The Australian midfielder will hold talks with the MLS club after the two parties agreed a reported fee of around £1 million for his transfer.

Cahill joined the Toffees for a bargain £1.5m in 2004 from Millwall after impressing in the east London side's run to the FA Cup final, where they were beaten by Manchester United.

The 32-year-old has been a revelation at Goodison Park since his move but his goal scoring prowess appeared to fade last season as he netted only two goals in 35 Premier League matches, by far his lowest total during his time on Merseyside.

And in our recent poll, 63.39 per cent of readers believe that Moyes was right to allow Cahill the chance to link up with former Arsenal legend Thierry Henry in the United States.

36.61% disagreed and still felt Cahill had plenty to offer the Toffees, who will hope to replace Cahill by securing the signing of Steven Pienaar from Tottenham.
