David Moyes expects midfielder Manuel Fernandes to officially become an Everton player "within the next 24 hours".

The Portuguese 21-year-old arrived in the UK on Thursday as a £6m deal was being formulated to capture him from Benfica.

Moyes said: "Manuel had the first part of his medical on Thursday and that will be completed today. I would then expect him to become an Everton player within the next 24 hours."
