Transfer: Koeman dumps Southampton for Everton


Everton have agreed a deal with Premier League rivals Southampton that paves the way for Ronald Koeman to become their new manager.

The Toffees will pay about £5m compensation for the 53-year-old Dutchman, who leaves Saints after two years in charge.

Everton have been without a manager since they sacked Roberto Martinez just before the end of the 2015-16 season.

It is expected Koeman’s appointment will be confirmed by Friday.

Koeman, who has been headhunted by new Everton owner Farhad Moshiri, will sign a deal reported to be worth about £6m a year.

The former Netherlands international, who is on holiday, will take brother Erwin and fitness coach Jan Kluitenberg with him to Goodison Park.

Saints have finished seventh and sixth under Koeman – their best Premier League campaigns.

Martinez promised Champions League qualification when appointed but Everton finished 11th in 2015-16, his third year at the club.
