Everton boss Roberto Martinez admits a permanent deal is on the agenda for Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry.

Barry is on a season-long loan at Goodison Park and comes off contract at City in June.

Martinez said: "What we want is to find a way where Gareth can come and be a part of Everton and enjoy his football, and we can all enjoy his experience and his quality.

"After that, we will see if there is an opportunity to see him for many, many years to come - because I do believe Gareth has got a long-term future at the club."
