Everton coach Kevin Sheedy admits Ross Barkley has won plenty of admirers during his Dallas Cup campaign.

The skipper has scored three goals in as many games and Sheedy admits he has been pleased by the 18-year-old's efforts.

He told evertonfc.com: "Ross has shown what he can do. The manager allowed him to come over because he needed games. Here, it's a lot of games in a short space of time.

"He's done well, he's looked sharp, but he still needs to improve on his match fitness. We expect him to continue doing well for us."
