Everton are in talks with Dundee for Scotland U21 international midfielder Kevin McDonald.

The Daily Record says Everton boss David Moyes, whose £100,000 bid for the 18-year-old was turned down last season, had McDonald watched against St Johnstone last weekend and with the Scots kids in Tuesday's defeat of Czech Republic. Dens Park manager Alex Rae will ask for the player, thought to be valued at around £150,000, back on loan if the move goes ahead.
