By Harvey Byrne
Hal Robson-Kanu will decide which club he wants to join on transfer deadline day, according to his agent.
The 27-year-old’s representative has revealed that Robson-Kanu will wait until the final day, as he wants an important club that has goals in the team.
Meanwhile, The Sun also claimed in July that Everton were interested in signing the Euro 2016 star.
However, if the clubs wanted to strike a deal for Robson-Kanu they would have to wait until deadline day, according to the players agent, Hasan Anil Eken.

“Hal wants to wait until the last day of the transfer window. He wants to play for an important team with goals,” said Eken to the Daily Mail.
“He wants higher standards and a good project. He has numerous offers from different countries. In a week he will make a decision.”
The ex-Reading striker is without a club after running down his contract at The Madjeski Stadium, which expired in June.
Robson-Kanu was a part of the shock Wales team who reached the last four at Euro 2016 and scored a memorable goal in the famous quarter-final win over Belgium, after a neat Cruyff turn in the box before calmly finishing.
The Wales international has attracted a lot of interest following his performances in France and it is claimed that Hull have offered him a contract, while Premier League rivals Middlesbrough, Burnley, Swansea and Watford have also been linked.
