Everton are swooping for Dundee United defender John Souttar.

The Mirror says Everton boss Roberto Martinez is ready to swoop for Dundee United's brilliant young centre-half Souttar in a £1million deal.

Martinez sent top spy Kevin Reeves to watch the giant 17-year-old in Saturday's 1-1 draw at SPL leaders Celtic.

Souttar has already played over a dozen times for United, who recently fielded a £600,000 approach from Sunderland for him.
