With less than a week until the transfer window closes the much trailed target had been landed. His Everton profile is here. He was at Plymouth for a few months last season, again on loan, but his opportunities were limited. He'll be known to our on loan Everton keeper, John Ruddy.
The official site says that he will be making the trip to Aberdeen at the weekend.
We welcome him to the club and hope he has a successful spell at Fir Park.
The transfer window closes at 5pm on Tuesday. Will the manager secure the services of the defender he seeks? If so he will join Ruddy, Coke, Jennings, Humphrey, Hateley and Jutkiewicz as the seventh import of the season.
