Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan said that Latics agreed on a compensation package that leads manager Roberto Martinez to Everton.
Speculations have surrounded the Spaniard linking him to the vacant role since long-time Merseyside manager David Moyes departed to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.
And now Whelan has revealed that Everton may confirm the news of acquiring the 39-year-old in the coming days.
Martinez has been with Wigan since 2009, keeping them from being relegated in his first three years with the club.
He has also been hailed for his excellent work with the squad, capped by their recent FA Cup title-winning performance against Manchester City.
However, the victory was bittersweet as the Latics were relegated after finishing the season in 18th place.
It seems that Martinez has beat out Jorge Jesus and Neil Lennon who have also been linked to the Everton job.
As for Wigan, Rene Meulensteen and Graeme Jones are said to be the names that could take over at the DW Stadium.
