Everton sign Jo on loan from Manchester City
"Jo agreed personal terms with Everton today and arrived at Goodison Park earlier to complete the loan move ahead of the 5pm transfer deadline," said Everton's website.
The signing will serve as a welcome boost to a Toffees's forward line that has, recognised strikers, James Vaughan, Louis Saha and Yakubu all nursing long-term injuries on the sidelines.
And with the Blues still sitting pretty in sixth in the Premier League despite those set-backs, largely thanks to the goal-scoring exploits of midfielders Tim Cahill and Mike Arteta, David Moyes will be hoping his new recuit can help fire his side into a UEFA Cup spot at the very least.
Jo will wear the No.11 shirt at Goodison Park for the remainder of the season.
