Everton agree to sign injury-plagued striker Saha

Everton have agreed to sign Manchester United's injury-plagued striker Louis Saha, subject to a medical.

The 30-year-old has been marginalised by the combination of Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney, while the emerging Fraizer looks set to step into his shoes for the coming season.

Toffees boss David Moyes had agreed an undisclosed fee for the France striker, who has been offered a two-year contract with the option of a one-year extension.

The 30-year-old former Newcastle and Fulham forward will become Everton's third signing in a week following the captures of Lars Jacobsen and Segundo Castillo providing he is passed fit by the club's medical staff.

Saha, whose spell at Old Trafford was beset by injuries, has 18 international caps and scored 42 goals during his United career.

Saha's arrival strengthens Everton's attacking options after the departure of Andrew Johnson to Fulham and caps off a busy few days for Moyes, who admitted last week that his resources were too thin for the rigours of a Premier League campaign.

He has since signed former Nuremburg player Jacobsen on a free transfer and secured a year-long loan deal for Red Star Belgrade midfielder Castillo.
