Donny van de Beek decides to join Everton on loan for rest of the season

Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek has decided to join Everton on loan for the remainder of the season, according to The Athletic.

The Athletic report that the Toffees came to an agreement with the the Reds yesterday and will cover the Dutchman’s full salary for rest of the season.

The former Ajax man has decided on a move to Goodison Park today.

The Dutch international was previously a target for Everton at the start of the season when their former director of football Marcel Brands was at the helm.

Your Club's CRUEL Transfer Decision This Month

Signing United’s number 34 has been a topic of conversation with Everton’s managerial candidates as they look set to announce Rafa Bentiez’s replacement.

Crystal Palace were also interested in taking van de Beek on loan but it seems Everton have won the race.

The £35m (BBC Sport) hasn’t started a Premier League game all season and has failed to establish himself in the side under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

After playing no part in Holland’s World Cup qualifying campaign, van de Beek’s chances of being selected in Louis van Gaal’s World Cup looked increasingly bleak if his current playing situation didn’t improve.

He has played just 579 Premier League minutes across two seasons.

After declaring earlier in the month that he wanted van de Beek to stay until the end of the season it seems that Rangnick has succumbed to the midfielder’s request to get game time elsewhere.

Donny van de Beek may finally now get the opportunity and sustained run in a side to prove himself in the Premier League.

With a permanent manager due to be appointed at the end of the season, the Dutchman may still have a chance to ignite his Manchester United career.
