Everton defender Antonee Robinson is set to undergo a Wigan Athletic medical as he puts the finishing touches to his transfer, Football Insider can reveal.

An Everton source has told Football Insider that the Merseysiders have granted permission for the USA international to head to the Championship club and discuss personal terms.

This comes after Football Insider revealed that Everton have accepted a bid of around £2million from Wigan for the left-back, who turns 22 next month.

Robinson has two years remaining on his Everton contract but has decided to move on in search of regular first-team football.

This comes after Football Insider exclusively revealed last month that Wigan had made a formal move for Robinson following his impressive campaign on loan.

The defender took his USA cap haul to seven this summer but has found game time harder to come by at Everton, where he is yet to represent the first team.

Marco Silva is an admirer of Robinson but the first choice left-back in his side is Lucas Digne, widely regarded as one of the best players in his position in the Premier League.

The Frenchman will once again be backed up by Leighton Baines in the coming season after he signed a one-year contract extension at the end of last month.

Robinson spent last season on loan at Wigan, where he made 26 appearances in all competitions and was a regular starter either side of suffering a serious ankle injury.

He previously had another successful loan stint when at Bolton Wanderers, where he made 34 appearances.

In the latest Everton news, Danny Mills has tipped the Merseysiders to sign an ‘Absolute menace’ who would be a “Fabulous signing”.
