​Everton deal for Standard Liege forward Belfodil on verge of collapse

Everton's £10.4m deal for Standard Liege striker Ishak Belfodil has stalled and may now be abandoned, reports BBC Sport.

The move was close to completion at the end of last week and the 24-year-old was awaiting clearance to fly to Merseyside from Standard's warm weather training camp in Spain to complete the formalities and undergo a medical.

Belfodil, however, has been frustrated as reports in Belgium suggested the move has become tangled up in financial complications and is now likely to be scrapped completely.
