Donny van de Beek’s loan move to Everton appears to have moved closer to completion after he reportedly underwent a medical in Liverpool.
The Manchester United midfielder has rejected interest from Crystal Palace to spend the rest of the season at Goodison Park, having been denied a single Premier League start by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Michael Carrick and Ralf Rangnick during the current season.
And Sky Sports claim the transfer has now moved a step closer to going through, with the 24-year-old Holland international having a medical with the Toffees.

The same outlet also claims LaLiga outfit Valencia were interested in a move for the Ajax star before he chose a move to Merseyside.
The 20-time English champions are set to receive a £500,000 loan fee, with Everton covering all of Van de Beek’s £100,000-per-week wages.
But United have made it clear the loan is no gateway to a permanent Old Trafford exit, having rejected the Blues’ proposal of an option-to-buy clause.
Instead, the Red Devils hope a few months away from Manchester can help revitalise the player they spent £40million on in the summer of 2020.

A deal between player and club could have been sorted six months ago, when a furious Van de Beek sacked his agent following the breakdown of a short-term Everton move in the summer.
The Dutchman has made just eight Premier League appearances – and 14 across all competitions – this season, scoring once, and will therefore hope to reignite his career at Goodison Park.
Everton hope he will not be the only new arrival confirmed today, with Frank Lampard set to be announced imminently as their new manager, replacing caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson after Rafa Benitez’s sacking.

The Toffees sacked the Spaniard two weeks ago after a run of one win in 13 matches and have taken their time to find the right successor.
Lampard, Vitor Pereira and caretaker boss Ferguson all had second interviews with the Everton hierarchy last week, with the club now set to go for the former Chelsea midfielder.
Sportsmail understands Lampard has put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half year deal on Merseyside.
