When asked if he feels confident that Barkley could stay, Koeman responded "No", before continuing: "It's a long time that he's thinking about his future but OK, I'm not anxious because I like to work with players who like to stay".

With the days ticking down to the deadline that Everton manager Ronald Koeman set for Ross Barkley to sign a new contract at Goodison Park, it's looking less and less likely that he will be staying with the club.

Koeman said last week that Barkley, 23, would be sold if he did not sign a new contract by the end of this weekend.

"If you offer the player a good contract, it means we want him to stay here".

"I like to work with players who like to stay". We are already trying to get players in for next season in the front positions. "If he stays there will be more competition for him next season".

"I am not anxious because I like to work with players who like to play".

RK: "We want to finish strong". We can beat them.

Harry Kane's four-goal haul at Leicester City on Thursday sent the Tottenham striker two goals ahead of Everton's Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Premier League's Golden Boot award.

And when asked if he was confident of keeping hold of Barkley, Koeman added: "No, because it is a long time he has been thinking about his future".

"We need to keep his goals and find more players to score more than four or five goals in one season".
