Everton hope to conclude the sale of midfielder Diniyar Bilyaletdinov to Spartak Moscow in the next couple of days.
The Russian club claimed they had agreed a deal with the Toffees on Monday but that was dismissed as slightly premature by the Merseysiders. However, Everton have confirmed talks are currently taking place and they hope to seal the £5million sale of the Russia international before the weekend.
"Discussions over the possible sale of Diniyar are ongoing with Spartak Moscow and we would hope to conclude these in the next 48 hours," a club spokesman told evertonfc.com.
