Schneiderlin's Barkley Hopes

Schneiderlin's Barkley Hopes

Morgan Schneiderlin has said he's hopeful Ross Barkley, match winner against Watford on Friday, will make a 'good' decision and sign a new contract to keep him at Goodison Park.

Heading into the game at Goodison on Friday it was made perfectly clear to Barkley time wasn't on his side to make a decision. Ronald Koeman actually said he had a week to accept an offer or be sold - the Everton boss doesn't feel the club can do much more in the bid to keep the England midfielder.

January arrival from Manchester United, Schneiderlin had plenty of praise for his teammate following his 25 yard strike to beat Watford.

He told Sky Sports: 'We know the contract is between him and the club but what we can say is he is still working hard, has a good attitude and is very happy in the dressing room. We will see what is going to happen. We can't say too much on whether he will sign the contract or not - we want him to sign but it is his decision. Hopefully he will make a good one by signing the contract.'

Barkley and Romelu Lukaku are players Schneiderlin is hoping Everton will retain this summer but has faith in the clubs hierarchy to have contingency plans in mind should one, or both, move away from Merseyside at the end of the season.

Adding: 'I think the team and the players like Rom and Ross very much. We know they are doing very well and the football club loves them but after that it is between them and the club. We can't control this, we can only control ourselves and the rest is not up to us. I am sure the club has a plan A, plan B and plan C.'

Weekend reports again claimed Schneiderlin's former club Man United were preparing an offer to take Lukaku to Old Trafford? On this occasion the Daily Mail claimed Everton would be offered the chance to re-sign ex-England captain Wayne Rooney as part of that deal.
