Everton have accepted a £10.5 million offer from Fulham for striker Andy Johnson.

The Liverpool Echo says the England frontman's future at Goodison Park has been the subject of constant speculation all summer with a host of clubs believed to be keeping tabs on him.

And Fulham now appear to have jumped to the front of the queue - ahead of Wigan and Sunderland - by having their offer accepted.

Johnson travelled with the Everton squad for their pre-season friendly at Preston on Tuesday night but was not included in either the starting line-up or substitutes.

And the Echo claims it is now "inevitable" that Johnson's two-year stay at Goodison will end in the next few days.
