We're not exactly blessed with quality central midfielders which is why Martin O'Neill needs to get on Twitter and start DMing the Everton man until he gets a response.
While he's at that he can delegate Roy Keane and John Delaney to dispatch some carrier pigeons, send a few telegrams, look up his old Myspace account and send out some riders on horse back.
Whatever the hell is necessary.
O'Neill says he wants to speak to Darron GIbson but hasn't been able to get hold of him.

O'Neill is also looking at Norwich winger, Nathan Redmond, as a possible 'granny rule' player.
MON also said he was exploring irish connections of norwich's nathan redmond, who has played in 43 england youth/U21 internationals
