The 19 year-old has already had a trial at Charlton and they are keen to get a second look at him, but speaking in today’s Evening Herald, Callaghan indicated the Toffees have now taken an interest in the defender.
“There is definite interest there from Everton. It’s just a matter of what they do with it, but they are keen on Kevin,” the manager said.
Feely has made just 19 appearances in the League of Ireland and featured last night in Bohs' 1-0 victory over Shamrock Rovers. The teenager comes with a strong sporting pedigree having represented the Kildare footballers at both minor and U-21 level.
Callaghan has said that although he would like to keep the player, any transfer would help bring in some much needed finance to the club.
Buoyed by the fact they spent just £150,000 to lure Seamus Coleman from Sligo Rovers three years ago, Everton will have high expectations of any Irish purchase after that particular deal proved a masterstroke.
