According to some reports Duncan Ferguson will be granted a testimonial before the start of the new season.
This will come as a welcome shock to most Everton fans, as Big Dunc is an Everton legend in their eyes.
In recent season's both Tony Hibbert and Leon Osman have had testimonials in preseason and if true Ferguson will continue that trend.
The club have lined up Villarreal to be the opposition. Everton fans will remember that a great trip to Sunny Spain in August 2005 against Manuel Pellegrini's side was kiboshed by referee Luigi Colina when he disallowed a perfectly good headed goal by Big Dunc and that was the end of Europe for us.
The game at Goodison is said to be played on Sunday, 2nd August. A week before the opening game of the season against Watford.
This is just 24 hours after Everton are due to travel to Leeds United in a friendly. This fixture could end up a game for the fringe players and youngsters so Roberto Martinez will have his first eleven ready for Villarreal.
We await confirmation from Everton.
