Everton boss Roberto Martinez has reportedly enquired about the availability of Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry.

The Toffees have been on the receiving end of much of this summer's transfer talk, with star men Marouane Felliani and Leighton Baines particularly hot topics, and Martinez is preparing contingency plans should the duo be tempted away.

One such option is England international Barry, who has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester City following the arrival of Fernandinho to the club.

City manager Manuel Pellegrini has allegedly told the 32-year-old he has no future at the club and a loan switch to Goodison Park could be on the cards.

Barry has made 175 appearances for the club since his £12million switch from Aston Villa in 2009 and has been linked with a return to his former club, as well as north London side Arsenal.

City are said to prefer a permanent move away for the Englishman but may find that they cannot offload him before Monday's deadline, in which case a late loan move could be a possibility.

However, with the former Villa man said to be on wages of over £100,000 p/w, the Manchester club may have to subsidise a percentage in order to move the midfielder on.
