Toffees boss set to be handed a five-year deal.
Manchester United will name Everton manager David Moyes as the successor to Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford on Thursday, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
Ferguson announced his decision to retire from football after 27 and a half years in charge of the Red Devils on Wednesday, with his final game in charge of the club being at West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on 19 May.
And it is then expected that his fellow Scot will begin his role in the North West, with Moyes said to be keen to bring both former United player Phil Neville with him to United to be his assistant manager.
Meanwhile, it is also understood that Moyes will make Everton full-back Leighton Baines his first signing as the new United head coach after the England international nearly moved to United last summer.
Moyes, 50, has overseen 516 Everton games since arriving at Goodison Park in 2002, winning 217 of those, which gives the Glaswegian a win percentage of 42.
