Sparktak Moscow have agreed terms with Everton for the transfer of midfielder Diniyar Bilyaletdinov, the Russian giants have confirmed.

The Russia international, who arrived at Goodison Park on a five-year deal reportedly worth £10million from Lokomotiv Moscow in August 2009, has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League.

Nine-time league champions Spartak confirmed on their official website that a deal has been agreed with the Toffees for the 26-year-old's signature.

Bilyaletdinov has also agreed personal terms and is set to undergo a medical in Moscow in the coming days.

The club said: "Spartak have agreed in principle with both the English club and the 26-year-old Russian international about his transfer.

"The contract should be signed after the player completes his medical."

Should the midfielder complete the move he would become the second Russia international to return home from the Premier League in the last six months after Yuri Zhirkov departed Chelsea for big-spending Anzhi Makhachkala in the summer.
