Bookmaker Bet Victor has listed West Ham and Newcastle amongst the contenders to sign Everton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin before the end of the January transfer window as questions begin to be asked about the Frenchman's future at Goodison Park.

Schneiderlin had to take to Twitter following reports that he had been sent away from Toffees training due to his attitude, and, as BBC Sport suggests, he vehemently denied the claims.

Nevertheless, with the former Manchester United man playing no part in Everton's win over Watford at the weekend, it appears that the speculation surrounding his future will not stop despite his social media post.

And Bet Victor appear to believe that there is a chance that he may end up leaving Everton in January, just one year after his £24 million move (via Guardian) from Old Trafford.

The bookmaker has listed West Ham and Newcastle as 6/1 contenders to sign Schneiderlin, which is the same price they list Arsenal at - just behind the 4/1 favourite which is any French club.

Although the Frenchman has not enjoyed the best spell with Everton and struggled to make an impact with United before that, he would arguably be a decent addition for either the Hammers or the Magpies if there is anything in the betting odds. And it would not be a surprise to see those odds drop further if, despite Schneiderlin's tweet, there are concerns over his attitude at Everton.
