Toffees keen to help former star resurrect career.
Everton will look to bring former midfielder Jack Rodwell back to the club in a bid to end his nightmare spell at Manchester City by making a second offer for the player this summer, according to the Daily Star.

The Merseysiders attempted to bring their former charge back to Goodison Park on loan during the January transfer window, but City’ failure to land Porto star Fernando on transfer deadline day meant that the move failed to materialise.
However, Toffees chief Roberto Martinez is still thought to be a big fan of the player and will make a second attempt to bring him back to the club when the summer window re-opens again in July.
Rodwell left Everton for City in 2012, but he has made just 26 appearances in two years at the Etihad Stadium and is not rated by current boss Manuel Pellegrini.
The England international suffered the same niggling injuries during his original spell at Goodison, but Martinez believes that his worst injury days may be behind him.
Rodwell linked up with City for £12m, but Pellegrini has hinted that he may be willing to let him go on a cut price deal.
