ENGLISH premiership side Everton are closing in on a deal for 18-year-old MK Dons midfielder Brendan Galloway, who had previously been linked with a move to championship club Norwich City.

Galloway was born in Zimbabwe, but has gone on to represent England at Under 17, Under 18 and Under 19 level.

Reports from Milton Keynes suggest The Toffees look set to beat Norwich City to the signing of highly-rated MK Dons youngster as part of a blockbuster £4 million deal.

According to the Milton Keynes Citizen, Everton are close to completing the transfer, with Galloway noticeably absent from training last week and left out of the Dons squad for their current training trip in Ireland.

Dons manager Karl Robinson has so far refused to confirm any deal is in place, but with rumours surrounding Galloway’s future continuing to circulate, the move could even be completed by the end of the week.

Bright prospects ... Brendan was named Apprentice of the Year at the 2014 Football League Awards

One for the future, Galloway became the youngest first team player in MK Dons' history at 15 years of age when he made his first-team debut back in November 2011.

Capable of playing either as a midfielder or defender, Galloway made 13 appearances in total for the Dons last term, scoring his first ever goal for the club in a 4-1 win over Halifax Town in the FA Cup.

Set to be integrated into Everton’s youth setup, Galloway was evidently drawn to the Toffees’ excellent track record for bringing players from their youth ranks through to the first team, as demonstrated by the emergence of Ross Barkley.

Alternatively, he could even benefit from a loan spell away from the club in much the same way Seamus Coleman and Shane Duffy have in recent years.

One potential option could see Everton purchase the player and immediately loan him back to MK Dons, though these plans will be subject to the wishes of Galloway himself.
