Bristol City boss Gary Johnson is aware of Everton's interest in his young fullback Christian Ribeiro.

"I have heard the rumours but there has been no official approach from Everton as yet and until I receive a call from David Moyes I will treat these stories as nothing more than talk," said Johnson.

"He's 100 per cent here, he's worked very hard, is very close to the first team, and has every chance of being in it next season. He's waited patiently and now he'll look to have a good pre-season.

"Everything is speculation."
