Brendan Galloway is on the brink of a high-profile move to Premier League side Everton in a big money deal.

Everton are set to beat Championship side Norwich City to the signing of Galloway, and are expected to pay in the region of £4 million - made up of clauses - for the teenager.

The 18-year-old was the only absentee from Dons’ opening day of training last week, and isn’t a part of Karl Robinson’s squad currently out training in Ireland.

Having made his debut when he was just 15, Galloway made three starts towards the end of last season, with much of the spotlight on fellow youth team graduate Dele Alli.

However, while rumours have circulated about the futures of the pair, it appears Galloway, who was named Football League Apprentice of the Year, will be the first to leave stadium:mk.

When asked last week if bids had been submitted for either Alli or Galloway, Robinson said: “Not as far as I know. We’ll have to wait and see.

“I know Dele wants to be here. Dele won’t stitch us up either. If he does get his move, he’ll make sure it’s right for the club and the fans.”

Meanwhile, versatile defender Jay McEveley has joined Dons training out in Ireland.

The 29-year-old Scot knows Robinson from his time with Blackburn Rovers, but was recently released by Swindon Town after two years at the club.

Last season, he made 37 appearances for the Robins in the centre of defence - a position Dons are keen to bolster, despite already securing the services of Kyle McFadzean from Crawley last month.
