Bohemians manager Aaron Callaghan has admitted Everton are among a number of British clubs chasing his players, with defender Kevin Feely, in particular, thought to be a much sought-after.

According to the Evening Herald, Roberto Lopes, Luke Byrne, Michael Barker and Kevin Feely are all on the radar of British clubs, and the Bohs boss has conceded that while he would "hate to lose" his players, it would ultimately be of mutual benefit, with the club receiving a much needed financial boost.

"There is definite interest there from Everton," Callaghan said. "It's just a matter of what they do with it, but they are keen on Kevin [Feely]."

Callaghan said that a number of other clubs, including Charlton Athletic, were also interested in the 19-year-old and are keen to have him for a second trial.

He added: "[Everton] are not the only ones interested. Charlton had Kevin over for four days and while he didn't play in a match when he was there he impressed in training and they'd like to have a second look.

"I would hate to lose Kevin but if we were able to sell him and bring in some finance for the club it would be positive all round as he really wants to further his career," he concluded.
