Martinez set for Everton
Roberto Martinez is set to be appointed as Everton's new manager after Wigan chairman Dave Whelan on Monday claimed he had agreed a compensation deal with the Premier League club.
Martinez was Everton's top choice to succeed David Moyes at Goodison Park after leading Wigan to a shock FA Cup final victory over Manchester City.
The 39-year-old confirmed he wanted to leave Wigan following the Latics' relegation from the Premier League earlier this month and Whelan has granted his wish after negotiating compensation of around 1.5 million pounds.
"Bill Kenwright (Everton chairman) and myself have agreed a deal," Whelan told BBC Sport on Monday.
Martinez, who had snubbed approaches from Liverpool and Aston Villa over the last two years, is now expected to be confirmed as Everton boss later this week.
