Ronald Koeman has confirmed that Ross Barkley will remain at Everton, despite his contract situation, due to no interest in the midfielder.
Koeman had previously made it known that Barkley would be sold unless he extends his contract, which will expire at the end of the season.
However, due to a lack of interest in him, Koeman will be keeping the midfielder who is recovering from an injury.
“I don’t have any update,” said Koeman. “There is no offer on the table for Ross, that means he will stay at Everton.
“The player has a one year contract and there is no offer. Maybe the club will not accept an offer because he is a good, young, English player. If somebody wants to buy Ross it’s a big deal.
“If there is no interest then he will stay and be part of the team. I respect every personal ambition of every player. He is still training with Everton, he is part of the team and training in a good way.”
