CHERRIES have reportedly turned down an approach from Everton for Nathan Ake.

Sky Sports claimed earlier this week that Cherries had informed Leicester that the Dutchman was valued in excess of £75million as the Foxes sought a replacement for the departing Harry Maguire.

Manchester City are also reportedly interested in Ake, but it is the Toffees who are said to have made a late move to sign the centre-back.

However, The Sun claim Cherries have rejected the approach from the Merseysiders as they retain their stance of keeping their squad today before today's 5pm deadline.
