Everton midfielder James admits retirement close

Everton midfielder James Rodriguez says he feels he's in the final stage of his career.

James has just over a year to run on his current Everton deal.

He told the Colmbian FA's website: "I can't tell you when and where I will retire, but I think it is that I have little time left in football for me.

"I would not want to play when I am too old.

"I want to enjoy these last years to the fullest and help young people."
