Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek has agreed to join Everton on loan for the remainder of the season, 90min understands.

The 24-year-old has been a peripheral figure at Old Trafford throughout his time at the club, failing to earn a regular place despite costing United £35m when he signed from Ajax.

90min revealed on Saturday that United were happy for Van de Beek to choose his next destination as long as any interested parties were prepared to pay a loan fee and his wages in full.

That decision has now been made, with Van de Beek set to link up with incoming boss Frank Lampard at Everton, spurning the advances of Crystal Palace in the process.

Arsenal had also been interested in signing Van de Beek on loan, having also tracked him for the best part of six months, but it was always unlikely that United would send him to another club competing a top four finish.

Van de Beek's imminent departure adds to the increasing exodus from United following the appointment of interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

The German has already allowed Anthony Martial to join Sevilla and Amad Diallo to join Rangers, and they could be joined by Phil Jones, who is interesting Bordeaux, and goalkeeper Dean Henderson, who is on the radar of Premier League strugglers Newcastle.
