Hull City have agreed a loan with Everton for Oumar Niasse until the end of the season with the option to make the deal permanent for a fee of £10m.
The Guardian report ‘The clubs were finalising the terms with Niasse on Tuesday afternoon and the striker is set to become the first signing of the new manager Marco Silva’s tenure. It has been agreed that Hull will pay all of Niasse’s £55,000 weekly wage – with no contributions from Everton. His contract at the Merseyside club runs until 2020’
Niasse cost Everton £13.5m during last year’s winter transfer window but has started just twice in the Premier League and is yet to score.
Ronald Koeman made it clear shortly after arriving at Goodison Park that Niasse was not part of his plans, but Niasse refused options of a transfer away from Everton in the summer. After not being given a locker at the club’s training ground and training and playing with the under-23s, it seems Niasse has realised he has no future at Everton.
