Manchester United flop Memphis Depay could be set for a January loan move to Everton, according to a report.

The out-of-favour winger has managed just 20 minutes of Premier League football under Jose Mourinho this season.

Toffees boss Ronald Koeman is thought to want to work with countryman Depay, which could see the attacker make the switch to Merseyside.

A loan move to Goodison Park is on the cards for the 22-year-old, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Depay made a substitute appearance for Holland last night in their 1-1 draw against Roberto Martinez's Belgium.

Koeman was scheduled to attend the Amsterdam Arena for the international friendly as rumours surfaced that Depay was the player under the former Holland international's microscope.

United are reportedly happy to let the winger move on, with the £25m signing failing to make an impact since joining the club in the summer of 2015.

Everton manager Koeman revealed last season, while he was in charge of Southampton, that the Saints attempted to sign Depay but were blown out of the water by the Red Devils.

"We tried to bring him to Southampton but he wanted to stay for one more year at PSV," Koeman admitted last year.

"When United went in for him this summer, we knew at Saints that we had no chance. When they come, we have no chance."
