Jack Rodwell will start the new season at Everton after his suitors declined to meet his asking price.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea had all been interested in the 20-year-old midfielder, but none will meet Everton's £15m requirement, lower than the £20m that was being asked last year.

Rodwell played for England in the European Under-21 Championship earlier this summer, but only made 14 league starts for Everton last campaign.
