Everton set to take big financial hit on Davy Klaassen as he closes in on £13m move to Werder Bremen
- Davy Klaassen is set to bring an end to a miserable season as an Everton player
- The former Ajax captain was brought in by Ronald Koeman in a deal worth £23m
- He was dismissed by Koeman’s replacement Sam Allardyce and barely played
Davy Klaassen’s miserable spell at Everton will end on Friday when he signs a four year contract at Werder Bremen.
The former Ajax captain joined Everton for £23million last summer but endured a difficult campaign following the departure of Ronald Koeman
Klaassen flew to Germany on Thursday night for his medical and will put pen-to-paper on personal terms to complete a deal worth around £13m.

It represents a significant financial loss for the Toffees, who backed Koeman with a big summer transfer budget last summer only to sack him two months in to the season.
Klaassen, 25, started just three Premier League games for Everton, all coming under the stewardship of his fellow Dutchman. Suffice to say, Koeman’s replacement Sam Allardyce had little faith in his ability as a midfielder.
It now appears Allardyce’s successor Marco Silva sees little value either.
