Henen expects his future to be resolved by the end of the month

by | 11/05/2015  Comments (15)  jump
Negotiations over the proposed acquisition of David Henen from Olympiacos are apparently underway and the striker expects a decision either way by the end of May.

The 18-year-old had expected to be a bona fide Everton player last summer but, after spending three months training at Finch Farm while complex talks dragged on, he ended up signing for the Greek club then being loaned to the Blues' Under-21s for the season.

Henen has impressed in David Unsworth's team and the Liverpool Echo report that Everton are sitting down with the player's agent, Christophe Henrotay, and officials from Olympiacos to see if a deal can be struck to bring the former Anderlecht striker to Goodison Park on a permanent basis.

The Echo understands that any fee would likely be in the region of 200,000.

Has there ever been such a long drawn-out saga over a guy who you just know you’re probably never going to see play?

To be honest, itÂ’s got boring now. IÂ’d rather we just sign flippin Justine Henen.

I know we donÂ’t have the riches of Man city or Chelsea but 𧶀k? Really?

ThatÂ’s not even one month’s salary for Martinez FFS! If the guy has any potential AT ALL, just pay the 𧶀k and get it over and done with. What is the problem with this football club? ItÂ’s run by a bunch of chimps and managed by Coco the Clown!

Every news story I read about Everton these days just makes me shake my head.

HeÂ’ll never even get anywhere near the first team anyway, so why the fuss over him?

IÂ’ve heard heÂ’s a good Â’un but needs to knuckle down a bit more. IÂ’ve also heard the fee is more lke 𧺬k which is a pittance these days.

Dragged on far too long, this one. If he was good enough he should have been signed last year. This could only happen at Everton FC.

𧶀-500k? Why donÂ’t we just sign someone on loan for half a season for that sorta moolah? Like Atsu... and er, never play him.

We really are a ramshackle when it comes to business.

Seems to me like heÂ’s done pretty well for the U21s considering heÂ’s only 18. Odds are against him but hope we sign him and he might just turn into something special...

I think Atsu being around the training ground and doing the drills and competitions have done the tram good, but that said itÂ’s a mystery Atsu never really got the chance.

Henen just suits our club imo being Belgian and got someone to look up to that are making good marks of our great club and he is following footsteps.

Surely he will be an asset to the young blues, just bring him here, we will find other players straight to the starting line-up anyways.

I hope he signs but heÂ’d better not be one of the four signings Martinez is talking about. Lennon, Henen and Garbutt... they wouldnÂ’t do that would they?

$200k? Even if he doesnÂ’t become any good, we can easily flip him for $500k no?

Does anyone expect anything different from this club??? Just check out how much we get from Umbro each year and compare it to our neighbours and you will piss your pants either laughing or crying...

HenenÂ’s future to be resolved by the end of the month

Why so early?
Surely thatÂ’s too early for Everton.

Late August is good enough for me.

Hold on, let me get this straight, last summer we wouldnÂ’t pay anymore than ٟ.5M for him but Olympiakos matched the ١M valuation and he signed for them.

He was immediately loaned to Everton, to play in the reserves all season, and now we want to sign him permanently for 𧶀k? What sort of deal is that for Olympiakos? Why would they sell him for such a loss? Why did they sign him just to immediately loan him to us in the first place???

Something is very wrong with this transfer.

From EvertonÂ’s point of view, can you explain what, Dick@14?

After months of working with this lad it surely is a sign of incompetence on the part of a professional group of coaches that they cannot decide upon his worth.

Seems to me the club’s entire youth set up is in need of a complete overhaul including players and coaches.
