Goodison Park flop on his way back to Russia.
Everton’s Russian winger Diniyar Bilyaletdinov is understood to be close to completing a move to Russian club Spartak Moscow.
Spartak claim the 26-year-old Russia international has agreed personal terms, but talks are ongoing with Everton to finalise the deal.

Diniyar Bilyaletdinov has been more miss than hit since his move to Goodison Park back in August 2009 and any sale of the Russian winger will at least, in theory, hand David Moyes some funds to reinvest in his Toffees squad.
The 26 year old former Lokomotiv Moscow man has notched up 77 appearances during his Everton spell and netted nine goals but has seen his form, and subsequently first team chances, fade and has been linked with a move away from the Merseyside club for the best part of a year.
The £10m invested in the Moscow born attacker represented a huge chunk of Everton’s transfer budget and Moyes will have been disappointed with the return on the club’s investment.
Spartak Moscoe have reportedly had reached “an agreement in principle” with Everton.
A statement on the Moscow club’s website added: “The contract will be signed after the medical examination.”
