Everton have had an offer accepted for Apostolos Vellios, according to the teenage striker's current club.
The Greece Under 20 international is apparently going to train with the Goodison Park outfit over the next few days before a three-and-a-half-year deal is finalised.
Vellios will be a free agent in June, but David Moyes' Everton are said to have made a reported offer of €250,000 (£215,000) to his club, Iraklis Thessaloniki, which has been accepted.
"We accepted the offer of Everton and Apostollos Vellios will fly to England," read a statement from Iraklis on Friday.
"In the next few days we will give more details about the transfer. We wish all the best to Apostolos at this huge step of his career."
