Everton have signed Brazilian striker Jo on a season-long loan from Manchester City.
The 22-year-old spent five months on loan from Eastlands at Goodison Park last term, and after a week of discussions, the former CSKA Moscow player - an Â£18million signing for City last summer - will spend the next 12 months with the FA Cup finalists.
Everton were hoping to complete the final paperwork for Jo to play in the club's first pre-season friendly of the summer at Bury on Friday night.
Jo scored five times in 12 appearances for Everton last season, but his future at City was put in doubt by the arrival of Roque Santa Cruz from Blackburn last month.
The loan deal was initially agreed last weekend and the player travelled to Scotland with Everton for a training camp this week.
Everton's other two summer signings, midfielder Anton Peterlin and defender Skhodran Mustafi, have both received international clearance to feature against Bury.
Everton have also confirmed that they will go to tribunal to agree a compensation package with Leeds for the transfer of 16-year-old Luke Garbutt.
Leeds chairman Ken Bates is annoyed by the player's departure from Elland Road and will demand "full compensation".
The Toffees have also been given permission to hold talks with Sheffield United full-back Kyle Naughton after a Â£4.5m fee has been agreed between the clubs.
