Stubbs: Barkley wants to leave Everton

Everton manager Ronaldo Koeman is preparing to sell midfielder Ross Barkley, according to former Toffees player Alan Stubbs.

Barkley is closing in on the final 12 months of his contract at Goodison Park, having decided not to sign the new deal offered to him by Everton.

Koeman has started recruiting in midfield, adding Davy Klaassen to his squad, and Stubbs believes it is a sign that Barkley may be on his way out.

"I think Ronald put his cards on the table with Ross before the end of the season and he gave him an ultimatum," Stubbs told talkSPORT.

"The fact that we are three weeks gone and Ross hasn't signed, then I think that's the biggest indicator that Ross' future is going to lie elsewhere.

"The one thing that he (Koeman) said towards the end is that he wanted more creativity in the team and I think, with Klaassen, he's certainly got that - his record is very good and he's a great age."
