Cahill set for MLS move

Everton have confirmed they have agreed a deal with Major League Soccer for the transfer of Tim Cahill to New York Red Bulls for a nominal fee.

• Moyes hopeful over Pienaar deal

Cahill has built a reputation as a goalscoring midfielder - but he netted just two Premier League goals last season in 35 appearances, and manager David Moyes is willing to let him move on.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Everton have agreed with Major League Soccer (MLS) that Tim Cahill can be transferred to the New York Red Bulls.

"Tim, 32, will move to the Red Bulls for a nominal fee, subject to agreeing personal terms and passing a medical. He will travel to the US in the next few days."

Cahill's exit would free up space on the wage bill for Everton to complete the signing of Steven Pienaar from Tottenham Hotspur, after his successful loan return last season.

The Australia international joined Everton for £1.5 million from Millwall in 2004 and has made 278 appearances for the club, scoring 68 goals.

Cahill said in June that he was considering a move to the Middle East, but it seems America is his most likely destination.

Should he join Red Bulls, he would link up with former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry and ex-Barcelona defender Rafael Marquez.
