One of FC Barcelona's first team players was given permission to leave the club's pre-season camp in order to finalise a move to a Premier League club.
The Catalan giants have reportedly agreed to sell left-back Lucas Digne to Everton in a deal worth €20 million (R308 million), according to Football Espana.
The 25-year-old joined Barcelona two years ago but has failed to live up to expectations at Camp Nou.
The Blaugrana have now confirmed via their social channels that the French defender was allowed to leave the club's pre-season tour in the US in order to finalise his departure.
Digne made 46 appearances for the Blaugrana, but started in only 35 games over two campaigns in Spain.
If he does leave the Spanish giants, he would become Barca's fifth departure in this window, with Andres Iniesta, Paulinho, Gerard Deulofeu and Douglas having already left the club.
