Blues look to secure Barkley

, 4 October, 18comments  |  Jump to most recent
Everton will offer Ross Barkley an improved, long-term contract this December in a bid to keep covetous hands off the 17-year-old and secure his future at Goodison Park.

Barkley signed a 2-year deal with the Blues last December, the maximum allowed for a player under the age of 18, but he will be eligible to sign a longer-term contract after his next birthday.

Though he has made only three first-team starts, Barkley is the subject of weekly speculation linking him to the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United, with one report suggesting a possible 30m transfer fee.

As he was with Jack Rowell, David Moyes has been careful in blooding the youngster and will hope to persuade Barkley that his future lies at Goodison Park.
