Moyes looking to beat Fulham and Sunderland to deal for defender – report

Everton boss David Moyes wants to sign Barnsley defender John Stones for £2m, the Sunday People say.

Fulham are said to have made an approach for the highly-rated 18-year-old along with Sunderland, with Wigan also reported to be interested.

Southampton’s Luke Shaw is still on Chelsea’s radar as a possible long-term replacement for Ashley Cole, the Sunday Mirror say.

It is claimed Ryan Bertrand will be given more first-team opportunities next season and that Shaw, who recently signed a new contract at St Mary’s, remains of interest.

The Sunday People say David Beckham will try to convince Cole and other high-profile English players to finish their career in the United States.

Moyes is again linked with the manager’s job at Chelsea, this time by the Daily Star Sunday.

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough and Crystal Palace have offered contracts to Kieron Dyer following his release by QPR, according to The Sun on Sunday.

It is claimed Boro manager Tony Mowbray, who played alongside Dyer at Ipswich Town, is willing to pay him £10,000 per game and that Palace’s former R’s boss Ian Holloway has also offered a pay-as-you-play deal.
