Everton boss Roberto Martinez is reportedly keen to welcome forgotten midfielder Jack Rodwell back to the club from Manchester City where he has failed to make an impact, according to the Guardian.

Rodwell made the switch to the Etihad Stadium just over a year-and-a-half ago for an initial fee of £12m, but his time at City has been viewed as a huge disappointment, and Martinez is hoping to capitalise on his frustration by bringing him back to Goodison at the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has been dogged by a series of hamstring problems with the Capital One Cup winners and has failed to secure any meaningful game time under manager Manuel Pellegrini, leading many to point out that his future most likely lies elsewhere.

Everton tried to bring the England international back to the club during the January transfer window, but were their attempts were thwarted after City failed to land Porto midfielder Fernando on transfer deadline day.

That proposal was for a loan deal, with Everton turning Gareth Barry’s temporary move from City into a £1m permanent transfer to overcome the Premier League rule that prevents a club loaning two players from the same team.
