Southampton striker James Beattie has reportedly plumped for a switch to Everton, snubbing an offer from Aston Villa.
Struggling Premiership side Southampton accepted bids in the region of ?6.5 million from Everton and Villa on Saturday.
Saints boss Harry Redknapp confirmed the England international had 48 hours to make a decision over which club to join.
It now appears the lure of Goodison Park has proved more attractive to Beattie, following talks with both clubs.
