Crystal Palace are set to beat arch-rivals Brighton to the signing of Oumar Niasse after they agreed a deal with Everton, TEAMtalk can reveal.
The 27-year-old impressed on-loan at Hull City last season and has been on the radar of a host of clubs.
Turkish giants Fenerbahce approached Everton, but the player has been keen on remaining in England.
Brighton had been looking to loan the player and the player was close to sealing a deal to the AMEX Stadium, but The Eagles have now swooped.
They have agreed a fee around £10milion with Everton and TEAMtalk understands the player is due for a medical.
