Joseph Yobo is set to join Turkish outfit Fenerbahce on a season long loan.
The proposed deal includes the option to make the transfer permanent when the loan ends next summer.
A deal has been agreed between the two clubs for the loan deal and will be completed subject to Yobo passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.
The Nigerian skipper is now en route to Turkey to meet Fenerbahce officials ahead of the closure of the Turkish transfer window tomorrow (Wednesday).
Yobo had not featured for Everton this season prior to his move to Istanbul, most recently missing the Aston Villa game with a slight thigh problem.
The 29-year-old Nigerian is one of the Blues' longest serving players, having arrived at Everton from Marseille in the summer of 2002.
He impressed on an initial loan spell and that deal was made permanent before the end of the 2002/3 campaign.
Yobo, who captained his country in the World Cup this summer, has made over 250 appearances for Everton.
His current contract at Goodison Park runs until 2014.
