Everton made sure of a sizeable sell-on clause in James Wallace's deal with Tranmere Rovers.

England under-20s international midfielder Wallace completed a permanent switch to Prenton Park yesterday for an undisclosed fee, although the Toffees insisted on a sizeable sell-on clause in case the talented Fazkerley-born player lands a big money move to another club in the future, says the Liverpool Echo.

Everton officials made sure they did the same when negotiating the sale of another promising midfielder, Adam Forshaw, who was allowed to join Brentford earlier this summer.

Although neither of the former academy players were in the frame for regular first team action under David Moyes next season, the Blues were keen to keep Wallace.
