Everton watching Rochdale defender Rhys Bennett

Everton are keeping tabs on Rochdale defender Rhys Bennett.

The Mail on Sunday says the 23-year-old started his career with Bolton before moving to Falkirk on loan and was then snapped up by Rochdale where he has impressed with his performances.

Bennett can play right back or centre back and Everton scouts have taken a keen interest in recent weeks as they look to strengthen their squad following injury to John Stones and veteran Sylvain Distin turning 37 next month.

Bennett signed a new two year contract earlier this year and Rochdale will be looking for around £1million if Everton firm up their interest.
