Ross Barkley has undergone a medical ahead of his move to Chelsea and the deal could be confirmed by the Premier League champions on Friday, according to Sky sources.

Barkley's current contract is set to expire at the end of the season and he has turned down the opportunity to sign a new deal so the Toffees have no choice but to sell him this month or they will lose him for free at the end of the season.

Barkley fell out of favour under former Everton boss Ronald Koeman following his refusal to sign a new contract last season. The prolific playmaker for the Toffees is yet to play his first game in the Premier League after recovering from hamstring surgery which was followed by another injury during training.

For the first time this season it seemed Del Rio had lost the team as the effort just wasn't what it was in previous weeks. He was an Offensive Assistant under Bill Callahan with the Raiders from 2002 through 2004.

The midfielder was close to moving to Stamford Bridge on transfer deadline day in the summer, but a move broke down in the final hours, with speculation at the time that he changed his mind during the medical.

Tottenham have been monitoring Barkley's situation but Sky Sports suggest the North Londoners have made a decision to end their interest with Mauricio Pochettino now looking at alternative targets.

The England global claimed he wanted a new challenge and there was reported interest in him from Tottenham Hotspur as well as the reigning Premier League champions.

However, he also suggested that it was likely a deal had already been agreed and it seems as if Barkley's time at Everton is over.

It will mean the player is leaving Goodison Park after 13 years, having joined Everton as an 11-year-old in 2005.
