EVERTON have reached an agreement to sign James Garner from Manchester United – but are still working out personal terms with the midfielder.
Garner, 21, is yet to kick a ball in the Premier League for United and has been shipped out on loan three times.
The arrivals of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen at Old Trafford have pushed Garner further down the pecking order.
And United are now hoping to cash in on the midfielder before the transfer deadline.
His impressive loan stint with Nottingham Forest last season has caught the attention of a number of Prem clubs.
Forest decided against adding Garner to their list of eighteen signings this summer.

But none of them wanted to meet United’s asking price of around £13m.
However, Everton gone full steam ahead and worked out a fee of around £15-20m for Garner with United, according to Fabrizio Romano.
However the Toffees still need to convince Garner to accept their terms as three other clubs are in the hunt for his services, it was added.
A move to Goodison Park would suit Garner, who’s seeking regular first-team football after consistent game time on his loan travels over the years.
Garner’s set to join Chelsea target Anthony Gordon at Goodison Park if he makes the move to Merseyside.
Gordon has been linked with a switch to Chelsea but Everton boss Frank Lampard has declared his prized asset won’t be leaving this summer.
