Everton's Morgan Schneiderlin is moving closer to a Goodison Park exit after passing a medical at French Ligue 1 side OGC Nice.

The 30-year-old midfielder, set to enter the final 12 months of his contract, has been in the south of France this weekend to finalise the move.

Nice director of football Julien Fournier told French media: "He should sign on Monday. He has passed his medical. We are waiting for Everton's signature."
