Everton are poised to to announce the marquee signing of Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez. The Colombian is set to sign for the Premier League club with more new faces expected at Goodison Park under Carlo Ancelotti this summer.

The 29-year-old is set to put pen to paper on a three-year deal as he reunites with Ancelotti to spearhead a new-look midfield on Merseyside, with the duo having worked together at both Madrid and Bayern Munich.

James is understood to have taken a significant pay cut to sign for the Toffees and his relationship with Ancelotti is believed to have been a key factor in a deal being struck for the 2014 World Cup Golden Boot winner.

The deal represents a huge coup for Everton as the Toffees try to bring a creative dynamism to their midfield ahead of the new season.
