Everton are set to confirm the signing of Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez on a three-year deal after the final details of the move were completed on Tuesday.

The Colombian international fell out of favour with Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane but is set to reunite with the man who brought him to Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti.

Rodriguez made 125 appearances for the Spanish giants following his £63m arrival in 2014 after shining in that summer’s World Cup in Brazil. The 29-year-old also enjoyed a two-year loan spell at Bayern Munich between 2017 and 2019 before returning to Madrid for their La Liga-winning 2019/20 campaign – although he made just two contributions in eight appearances.
