Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - SPORT | SOCCER -

EVER­TON mid­fielder Ross Barkley has de­nied re­ports say­ing he un­der­went a med­i­cal at Premier League cham­pi­ons Chelsea on trans­fer dead­line day.

On Thurs­day, Ever­ton’s ma­jor­ity share­holder, Farhad Moshiri, told Sky Sports that Barkley had trav­elled to Chelsea’s train­ing ground for a med­i­cal ahead of a planned £35 mil­lion move, but had changed his mind about the trans­fer.

“Con­trary to a num­ber of re­ports in the press, I did not un­der­take a med­i­cal with any club at any point,” Barkley, who is re­cov­er­ing from a ham­string in­jury, said on Twit­ter.
