Old Trafford bit part player to become latest Man United man to move to Goodison Park.
Manchester United’s Darron Gibson has emerged as a £2.5million target for Everton.
Gibson has been told by manager Sir Alex Ferguson that he can leave United, and is understood to have held preliminary talks with the Goodison Park club.
The Republic of Ireland midfielder was set to leave United for Sunderland in the summer, but the proposed move broke down over personal terms.
Gibson has made just two appearances this season, having fallen out of favour. He has also suffered a broken metatarsal.
The 24-year-old was fined, along with Wayne Rooney and Jonny Evans, following a boozy Boxing Day night-out which angered Fergie.
With Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs, Tom Cleverley and Anderson ahead of him in the pecking order, plus the return of Paul Scholes from a short-lived retirement, Gibson has little chance of re-establishing himself at United.

Gibson was already living on borrowed time at Old Trafford and indeed the 24 year old almost joined Sunderland in the summer, where he would have followed former team-mates Wes Brown and John O’Shea, but now he is set to join the growing collective of former Man United stars at Goodison Park.
David Moyes is clearly a manager with little in the way of transfer funds and may feel that £2.5m is a fair price to pay for the Irish international and Darron Gibson will join the likes of Louis Saha, Tim Howard and Phil Neville in following a well trod route from Man United to Everton.
