Report: Oumar Niasse set for new club after June release from Everton


Report: Oumar Niasse set for new club after June release from Everton

Back in June, it was announced by Everton that striker Oumar Niasse was leaving the club on a free transfer at the end of his contract. 

It brought to an end a disappointing career for the Roberto Martinez signing, who cost a reported (Sky Sports) £13.5 million deal from Lokomotiv Moscow in February 2016. 

His career at Everton never really got off the ground, with the changing of managers not helping, and subsequent loan spells at Hull City and Cardiff City followed.

In the end, after 42 games and nine goals in four-and-a-half years at Goodison Park, it proved a poor investment from the club.

That said, he still has a reputation as a goalscorer, particularly in Turkey, where the 30-year-old was a star player for Akhisar Belediyespor. 

Now, it seems the Senegal international is heading back to Turkey, where he will be signing for Kayserispor.


That is according to a report from local paper Kayseri Haber, who claim that a ‘large agreement’ has been met between the parties involved and Niasse will join the Anatolian Stars in due course. 

He will be joining his former Everton team-mate, Aaron Lennon, at the club, following the 21-cap ex-England international’s move to the club earlier this month. 

Whilst Niasse never truly impressed at Everton, his commitment and work-rate was never really in doubt and that was, at least, always appreciated by Evertonians. 

Hopefully, he can find form again back in Turkish football and highlight just why Everton paid such a big sum for his services all those years ago.
