Morgan Schneiderlin finally looks set to end his Manchester United nightmare after the club agreed a £22m deal to sell the midfielder to Everton, according to The Telegraph.
Schneiderlin is expected to be formally unveiled as the Toffees new signing within the next 48 hours and reunite with Ronald Koeman, who managed him at Southampton, bringing the curtain down on a frustrating stint at Old Trafford.
After protracted negotiations, the two clubs reached a breakthrough on Tuesday, with the French midfielder now clear to travel to Goodison Park for a medical and agree personal terms.
West Brom also expressed an interest in signing the 27-year-old, but accepted that they could not match Everton's offer after having an £18m offer turned down by United.
Schneiderlin was signed to great expectations at Old Trafford after an excellent season with Southampton and featured prominently under Louis van Gaal, but fell down the pecking order under Mourinho as the Portuguese coach favoured Ander Herrera, Michael Carrick and Paul Pogba in central midfield.
The 27-year-old recently posted a video of himself training hard in a park in Manchester as he tried to attract potential clubs, and will be afforded the opportunity to get his career back on track at Everton.
Meanwhile, Koeman is reportedly still interested in bringing in Memphis Depay, another Mourinho outcast, and is confident a deal can be completed before the end of the January transfer window.
