Manuel Fernandes is flying to England to complete a loan move back to Everton.
David Moyes claimed earlier this week that he was unaware of a move for the 21-year-old, who spent a highly successful spell with the Toffees last year.
Everton had Fernandes lined up for a permanent deal last summer and agreed terms with Benfica - but he shunned a switch to Merseyside in favour of a move to Valencia.
However, the move to Mestalla has not gone according to plan and he has started just five league games this term.
Fernandes is now ready to return to Goodison Park on a loan deal until the end of the season, with a view to finally sealing a permanent move to Everton.
Fernandes is set for a medical and a deal should be finalised before the weekend's clash with Manchester City.
