Exclusive: Everton join chase for £4m-rated League One star

Everton boss David Moyes has joined the chase for Huddersfield hot shot Jordan Rhodes - but will have to find £4 million to get the new Scotland cap.
Moyes is looking for a goalscorer and will rival West Ham and Celtic for the prolific forward who is pushing Lee Clark’s side towards promotion.
The Goodison chief will be given money for a new forward by owner Bill Kenwright. His budget is below Rhodes’s asking price, but he can pay for the striker in installments.
Rhodes has shown his class for club and country this season and Everton spies think he could be the answer to their problems.
The Terriers are reluctant to sell but they have an auction on their hands and may take the biggest bidder if it reaches the £4 million figure.
Hammers are also committed to landing Rhodes, but his valuation may be too rich for SPL giants Celtic who would have to sell before they can fund his capture.
