​Klaassen a reluctant partner in Everton switch to Napoli

The proposed loan deal for Everton's Davy Klaassen to move to Napoli looks increasingly unlikely, reports BBC Sport.

The 24-year-old former Ajax captain - signed in a £24m summer deal by former manager Ronald Koeman - is in no rush to quit Goodison Park and switch to Serie A.

Everton are willing to offload the Netherlands midfield man and were happy to do the loan deal with Napoli after his struggles this season but at this stage - with hours left in the window - Klaassen is reluctant to leave.
