'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Owls linked with Everton star Barkley

Wednesday have been linked with a loan move for Everton youngster Ross Barkley.

The 18-year-old starlet is tipped as one of the stars of the future but Toffees manager David Moyes is keen to loan him out to get more first-team experience, with the Owls understood to be leading the way for his signature.

The creative midfielder has already made a number of first-team appearances for the Premier League club and also starred for England U19s in the European Championship over the summer.

And the Everton boss believes Barkley's development would be better served by playing regular football at Championship level.

Moys said: 'I can't do it right now until the squad is strong enough. I want him to go out and play. It seems right. I remember David Beckham coming to play when I was at Preston. You've got to remember Ross is still a boy.

'We put him in last year and he's doing well. But it would be easier for him to go to the Championship and make his mistakes rather than in the Premier League.'

Everton will wait until the close of the transfer window before letting Barkley leave but Wednesday are reported to be leading the chance for his services.
