Shaka Hislop explains what Barkley needs to do to earn Everton exit

Former Premier League goalkeeper Shaka Hislop has said that Everton star Ross Barkley will need to lower his wage demands should he wish to secure a January transfer to Tottenham.

Barkley has refused to sign a new contract with the Toffees and with his current deal set to expire at the end of the season, the Merseyside club will look to sell him in January.

The 23 year old has yet to play this season due to a hamstring injury which is set to rule him out for the rest of 2017.  Tottenham are once again strongly linked with a move for the playmaker.

Hislop however believes that the player will need to lower his wage demands if a move is to happen. He said, “Well, I think it’s possible. He’s got to step down from what was reportedly his wage demands in the summer.

“He was widely touted to make a move in the summer but he wanted to be the highest paid midfield player on Spurs’ books, that’s not going to happen.”
