The Toffees had agreed terms with Yobo and Marseille with regards to completing the deal, however the African needed to agree terms with the French outfit before departing.
Yobo has agreed a four-year deal with the Merseyside outfit, after the African impressed during a season-long loan deal.
The 22-year-old was a key figure in Everton's resurgent season, having made 22 league starts this term.
"Joseph Yobo has now reached an agreement with Marseille and we expect the deal to be sealed within 24 hours," explained the club's chief executive Michael Dunford.
"He is now our player."
