Manchester United have confirmed that midfielder Tom Cleverley is set to join Merseyside outfit Everton on a permanent deal.
Taking to Twitter, the Old Trafford outfit have wished the England international luck as he prepares to join the ranks at Goodison Park under the guidance of Roberto Martinez.
Cleverley, of course, spent this past season on loan at Aston Villa, playing a key role for the club as they avoided relegation.
Despite previously playing a key role under Sir Alex Ferguson at the Theatre of Dreams, the soon to be Everton man endured a tricky time under David Moyes in 2013/14, and was ultimately sent on his way by current United chief Louis van Gaal.
This season, though at Villa Park, Cleverley has started to find his best form, and will no doubt be hoping to continue his progress over the coming years.
Manchester United tweeted: "#mufc would like to wish Tom Cleverley the best of luck for the future as he prepares to join Everton on 1 July."
Thrive under Martinez
There's no doubt about it, under the Martinez regime on Merseyside, Cleverley most certainly can become a leading player for the club for the foreseeable future. Of course, the midfielder previously worked with Martinez at Wigan, so he should arrive at the club with a great deal of confidence.
On his day, he's more than capable of becoming a real asset for the Toffees: full of energy and a fine range of passing, Cleverley is often underestimated, but has the credentials to be quite the coup for Everton. Expect him to produce the goods next season.
