Reports suggesting Everton full back Seamus Coleman has been the subject of a £20m bid from Paris Saint-Germain in recent days are well wide of the mark, understands.

A UK radio station have been reporting that PSG had made a bid that involved cash and a player in a bid to sign Coleman, with Everton said to have rejected that offer.

Yet it is believed that an agent involved in a potential deal to move his player out of PSG was the source of a story, with no bid being lodged for Coleman from PSG in recent days.

Coleman has long been linked with a move from Everton, usually to Manchester United but he did sign a new deal at Goodison last summer and confirmed to the Sunday World earlier this year that he had no intention of leaving the Goodison Park club any time soon.

Everton have made it clear in recent days that they will not be held ransom by big-spending clubs for their star names, with Goodison Park chairman Bill Kenwright releasing a statement on Thursday confirming his club would not be selling defender John Stones to Everton.

Meanwhile, reports that Stones has been 'hounded out of his house' after abuse from Everton supporters may have been overblown in the media, with understanding that the players has decided to move into a hotel for a period after a minor incident at his home.

Stones is now preparing to stay at Everton for this season after his transfer request was refused and he is expected to line-up for Roberto Martinez's side at Tottenham on Saturday.
