Everton are interested in Blackpool winger Matt Phillips.

The People says Everton boss David Moyes is in the race for Blackpool's speedy star Phillips - but faces a battle for his signature.

Moyes saw the player at close quarters last week, when Everton ended the Seasiders' FA Cup run.

And was so impressed that he is poised to move for the 20-year-old who has been called into the Scotland squad despite his England Under-20 caps.

Blackpool fought off interest from Bolton Wanderers in the last window but could be under siege next time.

Wanderers are still keen, while there are others interested. Celtic boss Neil Lennon sent sidekick Garry Parker to check out Phillips last week.
