Everton are finalising a loan deal for Chelsea winger Christian Atsu.

The Daily Mail says Atsu, who moved to Stamford Bridge from Porto last summer, spent last season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem. He scored five goals in 28 appearances for the Dutch side.

Sunderland and Aston Villa were among 12 clubs interested in Atsu, but it appears manager Roberto Martinez has convinced him his immediate future lies at Everton.
