Man Utd, Chelsea join interest in Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite

Manchester United and Chelsea are among clubs keen on Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite.

Branthwaite is set to have his loan spell at Dutch side PSV Eindhoven terminated this winter with the defender struggling for game time.

After a breakthrough season at Goodison Park last term, the 20-year-old headed to the Eredivisie for a season-long loan to join up with Ruud van Nistelrooy's side.

However, after only starting three league games for the Rood-Witten, the Daily Mail says the Blues will look to recall the defender in the forthcoming transfer window with other European clubs said to be interested.

The report adds that former Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho holds an interest in the England U20 international. Roma could try and strike a deal with the Blues for Branthwaite.
