Leeds united will hold talks with Everton over the weekend with a view to extending midfielder Ross Barkley’s loan at Elland Road.
United manager Neil Warnock is planning to speak with his Everton counterpart, David Moyes, inset, in the next 48 hours with Barkley’s deal set to expire next week.
The 19-year-old’s month-long stay at Leeds ends after Tuesday’s match at Middlesbrough but Leeds will look to retain Barkley for the rest of the Championship term.
Barkley, pictured far right, has started three league games for United and will be part of their squad at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Leeds were one of a number of Championship clubs who expressed an interest in him last month but the teenager is highly-rated by Everton and could yet be recalled. Warnock said: “I’ll be talking to David Moyes over the weekend. He said he’d let him come for a few games and we’d have a chat nearer the time.
“You just don’t know with loan situations but we’ll see what develops.
“He’s still in my thoughts, very much so.”
