Manchester United have triggered a one-year extension clause on Marouane Fellaini's contract, Press Association Sport understands.

The development means the Belgian is now committed to the Old Trafford club until 2018.

Fellaini signed a four-year contract containing this option of a further year when he joined the club from Everton in a £27.5million deal in 2013.

Man United midfielder set for Everton medical

Morgan Schneiderlin is set to undergo a medical at Everton, Press Association Sport understands.

The 27-year-old midfielder is poised to move from Manchester United to Goodison Park after the clubs agreed a £22million fee and he was pictured arriving at the Toffees' Finch Farm training ground on Wednesday afternoon.

Schneiderlin moved to Old Trafford from Southampton in a deal worth around £25million in July 2015, but has struggled to make an impact since manager Jose Mourinho's arrival last summer.

The France international now looks set to join former Saints boss Ronald Koeman on Merseyside, with realistic add-ons understood to have been built in that could take the transfer figure to £24million.

Schneiderlin has not started a Premier League game this season and has made just eight appearances under Mourinho.

Jose Mourinho will bring big hitters Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba into a refreshed Manchester United side for the EFL Cup semi-final against Hull.

In-form United racked up an eighth consecutive victory in all competitions on Saturday as Championship promotion hopefuls Reading were swatted aside in the FA Cup.

Mourinho made nine changes for the tie and has promised to rotate further on Tuesday, when Hull arrive for the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final.

"Today I played with fresh players, I don't want to put things in first team or second, first choice or second choice," Mourinho said on Saturday.

"Today I played with fresh players, the players that didn't play against West Ham. And the next match against Hull I'm going to play again with fresh players so it's easy to know our team - it's Zlatan, it's Pogba, it's (Ander) Herrera, it's (Antonio) Valencia, the guys who didn't play today."

Wayne Rooney has already set his sights on becoming Manchester United's outright top goalscorer after equalling the record in the 4-0 FA Cup victory over Reading.

The 31-year-old striker joined Sir Bobby Charlton on 249 club goals with his seventh-minute opener in the third round tie against the Royals.

Anthony Martial slotted his sixth goal of the season into the bottom right corner to double the lead eight minutes later before Marcus Rashford's second-half brace sealed a comfortable victory.

Rooney told BT Sport: "It's a proud moment to do so at such a massive club like Manchester United.

"I'm hugely honoured to be able to play for this football club but to be up there in terms of goals with Sir Bobby, it's a really proud moment for me and hopefully I'll be out there on my own soon. But I'll enjoy today because it's a real honour."
