Portsmouth are battling to keep hold of England youth defender Adam Webster.

The People says Everton, Fulham and Stoke City all want to see the giant 17-year-old defender on trial before making bids for him.

Local lad Webster has been on the bench for the past couple of months but cannot play reserve football as the cash-strapped club do not have a team at that level.

Respective bosses David Moyes, Martin Jol and Tony Pulis are all keen but are unwilling to commit to a cash deal until they see Webster at first hand in the next few weeks.
