Everton are ready to end their interest in Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry.

The Daily Mail says Barry is deliberating over their contract offer with West Ham United interested in the 33-year-old free agent too.

Everton are ready to turn to QPR's Stephane Mbia, 28, who also comes off contract this month, as an alternative.
