Ross Barkley is set to complete a move to Chelsea from Everton today after the two clubs agreed on a £15m fee for the English midfielder. Barkley, who was on the verge of a move to Stamford Bridge in the summer, decided against the transfer on Deadline Day.

According to Sky Sports, the 24-year-old has passed a medical for Antonio Conte’s side and an official announcement is expected on Friday night.

Barkley hasn’t made an appearance this season for the Toffees after being sidelined last season with a need for surgery on his hamstring. However, he recently returned to first-team training under Sam Allardyce and his first appearance in Chelsea blue shouldn’t be too far away.

Tottenham were also reportedly interested in signing Barkley but Mauricio Pochettino opted against pursuing him, though it’s likely that could be down to Chelsea being Barkley’s first choice.
