Everton nearing the signing of former Wolves left-back Ruben Vinagre.

The 23-year-old Sporting Lisbon defender was at Everton’s Finch Farm on Tuesday for his medical treatment before agreeing to a season-long loan with an option to make the deal permanent.

Vinagre did not leave Wolves permanently until earlier this month after joining the Portuguese squad to whom he was loaned out last season.

During his time at the Molineux stadium, Vinagre made 69 appearances and scored three goals.

However, he was loaned out in the past two seasons with Sporting, and both Olympiacos and Famalicao during the 2020-21 season.

To date, James Tarkowski is the only addition this summer.
