LIVERPOOL // Everton have reached an agreement to sign the striker Louis Saha from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee. Subject to passing a medical, the 30-year-old French international will join the Toffees on a two-year contract, with an option for a third year. Saha scored 42 goals in 124 appearances for the Red Devils since joining from Fulham in 2003, but his time at Old Trafford has been beset by injury problems.

Saha has fallen behind Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez in the United pecking order and will hope a move to Goodison Park will reignite his career. Saha, who has scored four goals in 18 games for France, is Everton's third signing in a week after manager David Moyes brought on Lars Jacobsen and Segundo Castillo. At Fulham, Saha scored 53 goals in 117 appearances, including one in a 3-1 match at Old Trafford.
