In May 2006 a deal was agreed between Manchester United and Everton that wouldsee Howard join the Merseyside club on loan for the 2006-07 season. Everton looked to Howard as areplacement for their newly-retired goalkeeper Nigel Martyn, in much the sameway as Manchester United, when they were involved in the search for a successorto Peter Schmeichel (after many unsuccessful replacements). Howard made hisEverton debut against Watford onthe opening day of the season. Since his debut, Howard has established himselfas Everton's first-choice goalkeeper.

On April 28, 2007, Everton faced Manchester United atGoodison Park. Howard did not participate in the game, and there was somespeculation that this came from a clause in his loan contract which states thathe cannot take part in games against Manchester United. However, since apermanent deal had been signed by the two clubs, such a clause would not bepermitted. This was investigated by the Football Association and according tosome newspapers, both Everton and Manchester United could have been fined forthis and possibly receive point deductions. But the British newspaper The Sun,however, held it to be more likely that this affair would result in a tighteningof the rules on loan deals. The F.A. eventually stated that neither ManchesterUnited nor Everton had broken any rules regarding Howard's transfer and thatboth clubs had confirmed that Everton had been free to play Howard againstManchester United if they had wished to do so.
