Everton have rejected as many as three bids for striker Jermaine Beckford.

The 27-year old former Leeds United man has attracted interest from Championship clubs Leicester City, Southampton and Nottingham Forest in recent times but Toffees boss David Moyes insists the Merseysiders are keen to keep him at Goodison Park.

"We had a £2million bid from Leicester - we have had an offer from three clubs for Jermaine - but we've not had one offer which we consider coming close to what Jermaine is worth," said Moyes.

Beckford scored eight goals in 32 Premier League appearances in his debut season at Everton to finish just a goal behind leading scorer Tim Cahill.
