Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek has made the switch to Everton on a loan deal, with no option to buy at the end of the term.
Everton have announced the deadline day capture of Donny van de Beek from Manchester United on loan. The deal does not include an option or obligation to buy for the Toffees, although the Dutchman will be hoping to play regularly under new management at Goodison Park.
Donny van de Beek can look forward to a change of surroundings as he escapes his Manchester United nightmare on a loan deal. The Dutch midfielder has signed for Everton until the end of the season with the Toffees.
Everton have had a busy deadline day so far, with the club making some key announcements. Apart from the capture of the Manchester United midfielder, the club also confirmed the appointment of Frank Lampard as their new manager.
The Toffees are also in line to sign Dele Alli from Tottenham late in the day, and these arrivals will only boost the mood inside Goodison Park. With the Dutch midfielder and the English star, Everton can look forward to a bright second half of the season.

Van de Beek had been close to signing for Crystal Palace only a few days ago. Everton swooped in very late for the midfielder and agreed on a deal with Manchester United to take him to Goodison Park.
The Dutchman has endured a tough time at Old Trafford after failing to cement his place in their starting lineup. The midfielder never showcased his talents at the club under two managers so far due to a lack of regular involvement. He was of interest to Everton in the summer, but former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was on hand to block the move.
The ex-Ajax star has struggled to break through into the team and has now got his wish to join the Toffees and hopefully play with regularity. The move will boost the Dutchman as he builds his game and targets a place in the Netherlands squad for the FIFA World Cup. If he gets proper game-time with Everton, he will be in with a shot to enter Louis van Gaal’s plans for later this year.
Everton have got themselves a talented player who is hungry to showcase his talent and bring success to the team. His primary objective would be to stabilise the Toffees and help them climb the table, away from the relegation zone and into the top half.
