Everton have completed the signing of Oumar Niasse in a £13.5million transfer from Russian club, Lokomotiv Moscow.
Niasse, who will be paraded at Goodison Park on Wednesday night, is expected to be available for selection for the weekends game against Stoke, subject to International clearance. The forward can play as either a central striker or a more wide player.
It’s a great day for me, A big dream to play in the Premier League and a big dream to play for Everton. Everton is one of the best teams in the Premier League and the Premier League is one of the best league in the world.
I know Everton is one of the big clubs here in England with history, the fans and the great players, so I’m very happy to be here. I started to watch Everton more since the beginning of October because I had heard about their interest. I was interested to see how they play and how they have good young players. If you see players who are aged 20 or 21 and see them perform like that,you know you have a good coach.
The 25 year old from Senegal will fill the gap left by Steven Naismiths departure to Norwich.
