Tom Davies of Everton in action
Davies, 19, started out in the ranks with Tranmere Rovers before Everton swooped to sign him in 2009 at the age of just 11, and he has been making his way up through the age groups ever since.
The midfielder burst onto the scene last season with two goals in 25 outings for the Toffees under Ronald Koeman, and he already has 30 appearances in all competitions to his name this season.
The Liverpool-born teenager hasn't quite impressed as much this season, but The Mirror reported over the weekend that West Ham United are preparing a bid to sign Davies during this month's transfer window.
The Hammers are desperate to add a new midfielder this month, and were seemingly preparing to test Everton's resolve on Davies, given that Sam Allardyce is open to offers on some of his players.
However, The Mirror now report that Everton have no intention of selling Davies this month, and will stand firm if West Ham do come calling for him during the January transfer window.
Given Davies' huge potential and his popularity as a homegrown fan favourite, Everton were always unlikely to entertain offers, and West Ham will seemingly have to take their midfielder hunt elsewhere.
