Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek is set to join Everton on loan.
Van de Beek was told by Ralf Rangnick he could leave Old Trafford until the end of the season after a lack of game time at the Manchester club.
Crystal Palace were also interested in the Dutchman, while there were enquiries from abroad.
However, Van de Beek has decided to link up with Frank Lampard, who is expected to be confirmed as Everton’s new manager.
The former Chelsea boss has been offered the job on Merseyside and is expected to accept in coming days after Rafael Benitez was fired in January.
Van de Beek is targeting more minutes after only being given four Premier League starts since joining United from Ajax in 2020.
He would be covering the midfield position for Everton’s injury-stricken squad.
Tom Davies, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Fabian Delph have all been sidelined until March.
