PNE physio Mick Rathbone has joined David Moyes' Everton revolution.

North End have let their spongeman go after weeks of negociations between the two clubs over a compensation fee.

He is the second member of North End's backroom staff to join Moyes, the other being Jimmy Lumsden.

Rathbone, a former Blackburn Rovers player, joked: "The whole thing means I am worth more now than I was when I was a player.

"I wish everyone at North End all the best."
