​Former Southampton man Morgan Schneiderlin joined United under Louis van Gaal in July 2015 but has been unable to break into Mourinho’s first team plans, playing just 11 minutes in the Premier League across three last-gasp substitute appearances.

During Manchester United win over Hull city tonight in the EFL Cup, news filtered in that United have agreed a fee with Everton reported to be £24m with add-ons. The move is now subject to medical; Morgan Schneiderlin will undergo a medical on Thursday and if everything goes well, he may be available for Everton home game against Manchester city on Sunday.
