Everton aim to trump Southampton for Rodriguez

Everton are attempting to beat Southampton for Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez.

The Sunday Mirror says Everton boss David Moyes is making a frantic last-gasp bid to sign Rodriguez - and pinch him from under Southampton's noses.

The England Under-21 cap has been with Saints for the past two days, discussing a record £6.5million switch from the Championship Clarets to the Premier League.

However, Moyes has now stepped into the chase.

He wants Rodriguez to stall on a decision and allow him time to try to get the finances together to bring him to Goodison as a partner for Nikica Jelavic.
