Bowler having medical ahead of Everton move

Josh Bowler is undergoing a medical ahead of his proposed move from QPR to Everton.

West London Sport revealed this week that an offer had been accepted for Bowler, having previously revealed Everton’s initial interest, their rejected bids and that the 18-year-old had turned down a new contract at Rangers and was likely to move.

Everton will pay an initial £1.5m for the winger, with the deal potentially worth £4.25m with add-ons.

He is under contract at Loftus Road until the summer of 2018, having signed an 18-month professional deal in February, and his reluctance to commit his long-term future to the club made his departure this summer almost inevitable.

Bowler, who was on Fulham’s books before joining QPR four years ago, made his senior debut when he came on as a substitute against Norwich on the final day of last season.
