Everton eyeing Rodwell return

Everton manager Roberto Martinez is keen to re-sign Jack Rodwell from Premier League champions Manchester City, according to the Mirror.

The Spaniard attempted to secure a loan deal for the midfielder back in January, though City pulled out after their move for Porto’s Fernandinho fell through.

The 23 year old made just ten appearances in all competitions under Manuel Pellegrini during the 2013/14 campaign, with more than half of those coming as a substitute.

The Toffees are set to lose Gareth Barry this season, with the England international heading back to the Etihad Stadium after a successful year on Merseyside, and Rodwell fits the bill as a potential replacement.

The England international made his league debut for Everton as a substitute in March 2008, and went on to make over a hundred appearances for the club before moving to Manchester for an initial fee of £12m in the summer of 2012.
