Everton have agreed a £12m fee for Ashley Williams with the Swansea captain set for a medical on Tuesday, according to Sky sources.

He is expected to travel to Merseyside later on Tuesday afternoon to complete the move and sign a two-year deal.

The Toffees wasted little time in strengthening their central defence following the departure of John Stones, who completed his move to Manchester City in a £47.5m deal on Tuesday morning.

Everton - under new ownership and new management from Ronald Koeman had a bid of around £10m recently rejected by the Swans with SSNHQ reporting on August 4 that a new move would be made for Williams.

But on Tuesday lunchtime it was understood Koeman had finally got his man.
