After a slow start this summer Everton's transfer business has gone into overdrive.

The Toffees announced two transfer deals last night, clinching a move for goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and playmaker Davy Klaassen.

The Toffees are closing in on a third deal too, with the Liverpool Echo reporting M'Baye Niang was at their training facility yesterday along with Klaassen.

He impressed during a loan spell from AC Milan at Watford last season and his transfer is expected to be announced imminently.
