Everton have agreed a fee with Norwich for Ben Godfrey.



The deal includes an initial fee of £25m and could rise to close to £30m.

Norwich have accepted the Toffees’ latest bid after previously rejecting a £26m offer for the 22-year-old which consisted of £20m up front, with a further £6m in add-ons.

Meanwhile, Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti hinted that there could be more business between now and the end of the transfer window after his side continued their perfect start to the campaign with a 4-2 win over Brighton.

When asked about potential incomings and out-goings, the Italian said: “Really as I said I’m not focused on this. I think that our technical director is working on this.Sponsored Links

“And so there are players that want to leave, to find another opportunity outside the club, I think we have no problem to let them go. You will see, you will see. Maybe something can come. Some new signings are coming.”

One player who does look to be on their way is Moise Kean, who is close to joining Paris Saint-Germain on loan.
