Everton wrapping up £8M Fernandes deal

Everton expected today to sign Benfica midfield star Manuel Fernandes for £8million.

But the Portuguese ace, 21, is unlikely to receive clearance in time for tomorrow's Premier League clash against Reading.

Blues will pay £6m up front, with a further £2m depending on games and honours won.

Boss David Moyes said: "I've added competition for places by making the squad stronger."
