Everton secure £6.8m signing of Nigerian Striker Henry Onyekuru


Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru has agreed terms with Everton and become their latest signing on a £6.8m deal.

The 20-year-old plied his trade for Belgian club KAS Eurpen and was joint-top scorer in the Belgian top division last season.

Initially thought to be headed to London club Arsenal, before being heavily linked to West Ham, his advisers saw the Everton deal as a more viable option.

Henry becomes the third high profile signing at Goodsion Park, joining Jordan Pickford and Davy Klaassen. However, he will leave immediately on loan to Anderlecht where he will play next season as he does not yet qualify for a United Kingdom work permit.
