The Netherlands international appears all set for a January exit with two Premier League clubs interested.
Everton and Manchester United have reached an agreement for midfielder Donny van de Beek to join the Toffees on loan.
Having struggled for opportunities at Old Trafford, Van de Beek is almost certain to leave. The 24-year-old needs regular game time and a loan move is an option, with Everton and Crystal Palace interested.
According to The Guardian, he has decided to move to Goodison Park. Everton have agreed on a six-month loan deal with United. The Blues made an approach on Saturday after Frank Lampard, who could be announced as their manager on Sunday, listed the player as a ‘priority target’.

As part of the agreement, Everton will pay all the Dutchman’s reported £120,000 weekly salary. All that is left now is an official announcement.
Manchester United defender Phil Jones, meanwhile, could also leave the club on loan to Ligue 1 side Bordeaux.
The winter transfer window closes at midnight on Monday.
