Cliftonville chairman Gerard Lawlor has defended his decision to request an improved offer from Swansea for Rory Donnelly after revealing Everton's bid was "considerably higher".

The teenage striker is set to leave the Northern Irish club in January, with Swansea, Everton and Liverpool all confirmed admirers. Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers was first to make his move when the club lodged a bid worth around £100,000, which was accepted by Cliftonville.

Lawlor told "Everton's bid is considerably higher than Swansea's. There is a major difference in the bids. They are miles apart. My job is to do the best thing for Cliftonville."
