Ronald Koeman has agreed a deal with Everton to become their new manager, his agent has reportedly told Dutch media.

Agent Rob Jansen said, according to the popular Voetbal International website, that it was now down to Southampton and Everton to agree a compensation package for the Dutchman, who has a year remaining on his contract at St Mary's.

Manuel Pellegrini, Unai Emery and Frank de Boer were all linked with the Everton job which became vacant when Roberto Martinez was sacked last month.

Jansen is quoted as saying: "We have reached an agreement with Everton. Now it is up to the clubs."

This season Koeman steered Southampton to sixth-place finish in the Barclays Premier League.
