Everton Chairman Bill Kenwright has said that he has no concerns over the deal which took Ross Barkley to Chelsea, despite Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson asking for an investigation into the move from the Premier League.
Barkley was set to sign for Chelsea on deadline day in August for £35m but turned away from the deal, and now after making the switch for just £15m many Evertonians – Anderson included – felt there was something amiss with the move.
But Kenwright sees different.
He said, “I’ve got no concerns at all, over what Joe said. I’ve got no concerns at all about Chelsea who were immaculate as they were in the summer, absolutely immaculate.
“It was a deal we agreed because the boy didn’t want to play for Everton.”
It is believed that there will be no investigation into the move.
