Valencia joins Everton

Everton have signed Ecuador striker Enner Valencia on a season-long loan from Premier League rivals West Ham with an option to make the move permanent.

Valencia joined West Ham in July 2014 after impressing for Ecuador at the last World Cup, scoring twice.

But he has since failed to make the desired impact at West Ham, scoring just 10 goals in 72 appearances in all competitions.

He will hope for better fortunes at Everton, who missed out on Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko after the France international chose to join Tottenham instead.

Valencia has become Everton’s second signing on transfer deadline day following the earlier arrival of youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin from Sheffield United.

Everton have also signed Maarten Stekelenburg, Idrissa Gueye, Ashley Williams and Yannick Bolasie this summer.
