Everton boss David Moyes hopes to land Barnsley fullback John Stones.

The People says the Toffees boss has little cash to spend but fancies a gamble on the England youth star, who is being chased by a handful of top-flight clubs.

The Goodison gaffer is worried about his right-back position - highlighted by Seamus Coleman's injury - and the fact that Stones could also develop into a centre-half makes him very attractive.

Barnsley have so far fended off approaches from Wigan, Fulham and Sunderland for the 18-year-old.

But Everton are the first of the clubs contending to finish in the top four to show real interest in this window.
