Everton go cold on Real Madrid midfielder Canales

Everton are having second thoughts over Real Madrid midfielder Sergio Canales.

The Liverpool Echo says the Toffees have watched the highly-rated Bernabeu starlet on a number of occasions, but David Moyes has enough exciting young midfielders in his current squad and needs players who are ready to make an immediate impact in the Premier League.

Real boss Jose Mourinho is thought to be willing to allow Canales, 20, to leave La Liga in order to gain first team experience on loan elsewhere in Europe, but Moyes would be unable to guarantee the former Racing Santander star first-team football.

Canales, right, already has four caps for Spain's Under-21 side, but did not make the squad for the European Championships in Denmark despite scoring twice in the qualifying campaign.
