Anichebe's current deal is due to expire in the summer, but Everton have now moved to secure the talented forward on a new long-term contract.

The highly-rated striker's future was the subject of speculation last month after talks over a new contract stalled.

However, Anichebe has always insisted he was keen to stay at Goodison Park telling skysports.com in December that he had no plans to leave Everton.

A number of clubs in the Premier League and abroad were believed to be monitoring Anichebe's situation ready to move for the 22-year-old if he failed to agree a new deal.

It is believed Everton are now close to an agreement with Anichebe on a new four-and-a-half year deal as the powerful forward is regarded as a key part of David Moyes plans at Goodison Park
