Everton won't consider offers for Man City target Barkley

Everton will not consider offers for Ross Barkley.

The Liverpool Echo says Everton will dismiss any interest in Barkley from Manchester City - but Roberto Martinez could consider a deal to bring Jack Rodwell back to Goodison.

Reports over the weekend have suggested City are eyeing up a £25million bid for Barkley which would also include former Blues midfielder Rodwell.

Barkley's stock has risen during the last few months after an impressive end to the season at Everton was followed by his performances being a rare high point of England's dismal World Cup campaign in Brazil.

The Blues have no intention of parting with the 20-year-old, with the club working towards the youngster penning an improved new contract this summer as reward for his progress.
