The Everton loan agreement for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma will be ratified on Friday after the club files the documentation before the Thursday deadline at 7pm.
Zouma spent last season on loan at Stoke, where he made 34 appearances in the Premier League to add to the 47 he made for Chelsea after his arrival from St-Etienne in 2014.
He will spend the 2018-1919 campaign at Goodison Park and could form a partnership with Yerry Mina.
Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma will complete a seasonal loan move to Everton on Friday
Zouma has not played for Chelsea since May 2017 and spent last season on loan at Stoke City.
Everton ignored Manchester United's criticism of Mina's agents to sign the Colombian defender from Barcelona for £ 28.5 million.
United refused an agreement and privately blamed the 23-year-old representatives of the growing commissions, but Everton completed his courtship throughout the summer.
The rate is of £ 27.2 million initial with another £ 1.3 million in supplements, while Barcelona has also inserted a repurchase option, understood as £ 54 million.
Everton also took Portuguese midfielder Andre Gomes from Barcelona with a one-season loan for a £ 2m fee.
Unlike his US counterpart, Jose Mourinho, Marco Silva will be pleased with the support given him by the Everton team, as he also confirmed the arrival of the exciting Brazilian midfielder Bernard.
An agreement for Marcos Rojo failed due to United's inability to add another defender. And the agents' fees stalled the move proposed by Mo Besic of £ 6 million for Middlesbrough.
Everton hired Colombian 23-year-old defender Yerry Mina from Barcelona on Thursday
Andre Gomes also traded Barcelona for Goodison Park when he completed a loan exchange
While Everton was the great dealer, Tottenham became the first club in the Premier League not to sign in a summer window since its presentation in 2003.
That was far from the case at Fulham, which became the first team promoted to the Premier League that spent more than 100 million pounds with the 30 million pound strike of midfielder Andre Frank Zambo Anguissa, 22, of Marseille.
He was quickly followed by goalkeeper Sergio Rico on loan from Sevilla and left back Joe Bryan from Bristol City. Atlético de Madrid striker Luciano Vietto also flew to sign for Fulham on loan.
Although Brighton beat them in the hiring of Valencia right-back Martin Montoya, Fulham changed his mind to catch Timothy Fosu-Mensah on loan from Manchester United.
