Barkley's new Everton deal worth £65,000-a-week

Ross Barkley's new deal with Everton is worth a cool £65,000-a-week.

The Daily Mail says Toffees boss Roberto Martinez has moved to secure the England midfielder on a long-term contract after a summer of speculation linking him with the likes of Manchester City.

Barkley will earn around £65,000-a-week in the deal which keeps him at the club until 2018.

Martinez said: "It is a big moment as every Evertonian will tell you Ross Barkley is the sort of player everyone would love to pay to watch him play.

"He brings back memories of the big legends we've had at the club. But saying that he is a young man and his best years are yet to come."
