Everton defender Mason Holgate is reportedly set to go out on loan in January. The Daily Mirror claims the Toffees have already received interest from Premier League and Championship clubs ahead of the window opening next month. The 22-year-old signed a five-year deal with Everton a year ago but has fallen out of favour under Marco Silva.

Chelsea are looking to sell Victor Moses but want a £12million fee, The Sun says. Clubs including Crystal Palace and Fulham are interested in the 27-year-old, who has made just six appearances in all competitions this season.
