Despite the club struggling under Ronald Koeman, the club wanted Gueye’s future settled since the 28-year-old’s arrived from Aston Villa and emerged as a key player.

Chelsea were monitoring his situation when they were looking at central midfielders but eventually landed Danny Drinkwater.

Meanwhile, Sean Dyche continues to play down links with the Everton hot seat despite admitting he’s “flattered” by the interest.
