Gareth Barry says it's crucial Everton manage to keep hold of Ross Barkley.

Barry is desperate for Barkley to continue his development at the club, despite Chelsea and Manchester United readying £20m offers to tempt Everton to part with their rising star.

"The manager has already shown he is not frightened to throw the younger players in if he thinks there is a role in the team and he thinks they have enough ability," Barry said.

"Ross is reaping the benefits at the moment and the more he plays the more confident he will get and the more he will improve."
