What felt like a dream having someone of Samuel Eto’o’s pedigree in an Everton shirt is about to over, it’s time to wake up.

Eto’o tweeted on Sunday morning that he had passed his medical ahead of his move to Sampdoria, which is to be confirmed in the next 24 hours.

The transfer fee, wages and contract length haven’t been disclosed in the media yet but they might be details that are revealed once the confirmation of the transfer has come through.

The Cameroonian only signed for the Toffees in August on a free transfer and was impressive in his early performances, scoring four in his first nine appearances.

However, the three-time Champions League winner hasn’t appeared since the first FA Cup game against West Ham United and has only started three times since the start of December.

Sampdoria drew 1-1 at home to Palermo on Sunday and Eto’o was there to watch his new side; coming onto the Stadio Luigi Ferraris pitch at the end of the game. The 33-year-old came on holding a Sampdoria scarf and even posing for a selfie with owner Massimo Ferrero and other new Sampdoria signing Luis Muriel.
