Following a successful four years in Scotland playing for Dundee United and Rangers - where he won a Scottish Premier League in 1994 - it looked as though Duncan Ferguson would head south of the border and move to England. A number of sides were linked with the prolific striker's services, including Everton and Leeds United, with the latter appearing to be the favourites to sign the Scotsman at the time. Rumours circulated that United were about to make a £4 million bid for the striker, and it looked nailed on that he would be heading to Yorkshire. Unfortunately for The Peacocks, Ferguson instead joined Everton and spent what later proved to be the first of two spells with the Toffees, returning to Goodison Park in 2000 following time at Newcastle United. It proved to be a massive blow for Leeds because Ferguson adapted to English football perfectly, scoring 75 combined goals for Everton and Newcastle during a 12-year spell in the Premier League.
