18-year-old David Henen is reportedly already training with Everton ahead of his proposed transfer from Anderlecht.
It's believed a deal has been done for a fee in the region of £1.5million.
As we have mentioned before he's not a signing to start competing straight away for a first team place and will join the Everton Under-21 squad, but anyone who has the ability and courage to not only attract Manchester United but also turn them down at just 16 has to be an exciting prospect.
'They offered me nice financial conditions but my manager advised me to break through first in Belgium. I have therefore refused their offer, like the invitation to visit their training centre. the then 16-year-old midfielder told La Derniere Heure.
Two years later and not only has Henen broken through in Belgium he has also impressed in France playing for Monaco B.
Last month he reportedly completed a medical at Finch Farm and the permanent transfer is in the process of being completed and made official.
'He's a young, talented footballer who represents Belgium in the lower teams, in the under-18s and has had good experience in going to France,' Martinez told the Echo.
He continued: 'He is a bright boy and we feel he is something different that we haven't got in the under-21s so we are hoping he is going to be giving us something different in that group,
'We want a strong group. We have already got talented and very interesting footballers and I think David can fit in really well in that environment.'
