• Ronald Koeman wants the answer to plan summer spending
The standoff over Ross Barkley’s new contract at Everton is not expected to be resolved before the end of the season, despite the ultimatum set by Ronald Koeman.
Everton’s manager has made it clear he is prepared to sell the England international this summer should he fail to sign the deal that has been on the table for several months. Koeman has also stated that the club require a final decision from Barkley by the end of this season as they need clarification before starting their summer spending. They are reluctant to let the 23-year-old enter the final 12 months of his current deal.
