Jack Rodwell staying at Everton

The Daily Post is reporting Jack Rodwell will not be leaving Everton FC this summer - despite reports linking the midfielder with Premier League giants Chelsea and Manchester City.The 20-year-old signed a five-year contract at Goodison Park last summer, but stories circulating this weekend had suggested the England Under-21 could be sold in order to raise funds for David Moyes to reshape his squad.

Moyes has no plans to offload the Birkdale-born man, and that Rodwell has shown no indication that he is looking to leave the club.

Free-spending Manchester City have long been credited with an interest in the versatile midfielder, who can also play as a centre-back, whilst reports claimed that new Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas and Spurs boss Harry Redknapp were ready to enter into a £20m battle for his signature.

Moyes, however, would be loath to part with one of his brightest young talents, and is desperate to keep hold of Rodwell, along with fellow first-team stars Leighton Baines, Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jagielka.
