The teenager has caught the eye of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, but told evertonTV: "The manager has explained the situation; I am young and I have got to learn. I need more experience which I am getting at the moment.
"I have always played centre half at a younger age. I got moved to centre midfield last year and haven't played in defence since."
It's not just at Club level that Rodwell has impressed though; he's a regular member of England Under-19s squads and even has half an eye on the Under-21 setup.
"I have got to keep doing well for my club and England Under-19s and maybe then I will get a chance for the 21s.
"We'll see how it goes this season for my Club."
