Everton are set to hold transfer talks with Leeds United striker Jermaine Beckford, Sky Sports News understands.
Beckford is now a free agent after the remaining one month of his Leeds United contract was cancelled by the club on Friday.
The striker spent a total of four-and-a-half years and scored 81 league goals in 126 appearances for the West Yorkshire outfit.
Beckford scored 25 league goals this season and while his tally dried up in the second half of the campaign, his winning effort against Bristol Rovers earlier this month clinched promotion.
The former Wealdstone marksman was heavily linked with a move to Newcastle in January following his FA Cup heroics against Manchester United.
Everton have been tipped to move for the 26-year-old in recent months and now it seems that manager David Moyes is one step closer to bolstering his attacking line.
