Romelu Lukaku to Everton: Striker appears to confirm he has signed for the Toffees by retweeting Stan Collymore's message
The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Goodison Park
The striker will reportedly sign for Everton for a club-record £24m transfer from Chelsea, with an official announcement set for 7pm this evening, when they have called a news conference.
Earlier on today, Lukaku cryptically tweeted that he was about to "write a new chapter" in his career.
The 21-year-old Belgium international spent last season on loan at Goodison Park where he scored 15 goals as Roberto Martinez's side finished just outside of the Champions League places.
Good luck @RomeluLukaku9 at Everton! Looking forward seeing you progress in the coming seasons!Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) July 30, 2014

The signing of Lukaku continues the Spaniard's summer strengthening after securing fellow loanee Gareth Barry on a permanent basis before Muhamed Besic joined from Ferencvaros this week.
