Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has admitted Morgan Schneiderlin is close to a move to Everton.

Mourinho told Sky Sports: “Before the match [vs Hull] I was informed by Mr [Ed] Woodward that the situation is close, so Morgan is more than probably going to Everton.

“I’m sad because I like him, I’m sad because he could be an option for us in the long season.

“I’m happy because this is what he wants, he wants to play, he wants to play every game, he wants to be an important player in the team.

“So if this is what he wants, I’m happy for a very good professional.”
