Barkley to stay at Everton

England midfielder Ross Barkley has signed a new four-year contract with Everton, the Premier League club said yesterday.

Barkley, 20, enjoyed a breakthrough year under manager Roberto Martinez last season, earning widespread praise for some dynamic performances as well as a place in England’s squad for the World Cup finals.

Barkley’s development into one of English soccer’s leading talents had led to media speculation that rival clubs, including Manchester United and Manchester City, would bid for him this summer.
