Everton boss Dave Moyes has made a move for Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher.

The Sun says Moyes is preparing an official £4million bid for the midfielder, who has come through the ranks at Old Trafford.

Moyes wants to kick off his summer spending by signing Fletcher, who played a significant part in United claiming the Premier League crown last season.

He sees Scotland international Fletcher, as a major player in Everton's bid to crack the top four after his team narrowly missed out on Champions League football to arch-rivals Liverpool.

Fletcher, 24, will be reluctant to move away from the current European and domestic champions.

But fellow Scot Moyes believes he can offer him a package to rival the £25,000-a-week he picks up at United.
