Peterborough United chairman confirms Everton scouts are watching his side's players

Everton have shown a willingness to purchase from the Football League in recent transfer windows.

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has confirmed that Everton scouts have been in attendance at the ABAX Stadium recently.

Peterborough have had an excellent track record of selling players to higher placed teams in recent times, and they currently have one of the youngest squads in the Football League.

Posh are the top scorers in League One, and it seems that their form has caught the attention of Everton, who have started to station scouts at their matches.

There is no suggestion that Everton will make a bid for any Peterborough player in January, but the Merseyside club clearly have some of Posh's top talents on their radar.

The Toffees have shown a willingness to buy from the Football League recently, and they have had great success with doing so.

Everton bought John Stones from Barnsley and he has developed into one of the finest young talents in English football.

Roberto Martinez’s side have also recently snapped up Mason Holgate from Barnsley and Matty Foulds from Bury, while they were also interested in signing Sam Byram from Leeds United, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
