Everton are awaiting a FIFA rubber-stamp before being able to complete their sixth summer signing after agreeing a season-long loan for Club Bruges midfielder Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe with an option for a permanent deal.
The transfer was agreed immediately prior to Friday's 11pm deadline, with paperwork submitted to the Premier League and Football Association.
And Belgian international Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe could become Everton's final signing of what has been a busy summer in the market for the Goodison Park club.
Potential FIFA clearance is expected to take place after the weekend, when David Moyes' club would then be able to finalise the move.
Odjidja-Ofoe's arrival would see the powerful midfielder link up with countrymen Marouane Fellaini and Kevin Mirallas on Merseyside.
The 23-year-old began his career at Gent, moved to Anderlecht and joined Bruges from Bundesliga side Hamburg in 2009.
