Everton boss David Moyes is prepared to sell Jack Rodwell.

The People says word ha gone round that quick money is ­required at Goodison Park.

Rodwell was mentioned in talks with Tottenham about a potential swap involving Peter Crouch and the England Under-21 starlet could be sold if the price is right.

Moyes is being forced to ­consider drastic measures ­because owner Bill Kenwright has confirmed the badly-kept secret the Toffees are stuck in a financial mess.

Everton may have to raise up to £10million in the next 10 days, and Moyes does NOT want to lose Phil Jagielka to Arsenal to balance the books.
