Chelsea winger Christian Atsu is set to join Everton on loan.

The 22-year old Ghana international will seal a season-long deal with the Toffees after spending last term with Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem.

Atsu, who appeared 28 times for Vitesse last term, has been linked with Aston Villa and Sunderland this summer but it appears as though he will spend the 2014/15 campaign alongside ex-Chelsea teammate Romelu Lukaku who landed at Goodison Park for £28million earlier this week.

Atsu initially joined Chelsea on a five-year deal from FC Porto in September 2013 but has not yet made a senior appearance for the west Londoners as he was immediately loaned to Vitesse.

The former Rio Ave loanee also started all three of Ghana’s matches at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
