An official announcement is expected from Everton later tonight or tomorrow morning.
He is likely to be farmed out on loan to gain valuable first-team experience, with a Belgian media source suggesting that six clubs have already expressed an interest in taking him for next season.
The 19 year-old announced on Twitter earlier this month that he had decided to make a permanent move to the Blues after spending last season on loan with the club's U21s set-up.
Henen had left the matter of ironing out personal terms and concluding a deal with Olympiacos, the team who currently hold his registration following last the complex transfer scenario that played out last summer, with his agent, Christophe Henrotay, while he went on a short holiday.
The Belgian looked set to sign for Everton from Anderlecht a year ago after spending the summer on an extended trial but ended up joining Olympiacos, with the Blues immediately taking him on loan and retaining first option on buying him outright.
The deal to bring Henen to Everton is reported by the Liverpool Echo to be worth around £200,000 while Belgian media report that he has signed a three-year contract.

IÃ‚d start worrying if there was still no Deulofeu news by this time tomorrow.

GDÃ‚s signing has been Ã‚closeÃ‚ for ages now though.
Henen though? Not really bothered if he signs or not, canÃ‚t see him in the 1st team next season so....

Nah weÃ‚re not like other clubs.

IÃ‚d even like to add the Summer 2003 Sean Davis saga to Fernandez and Kanchelskis. Then there was of course Muller and probably a shit load more we canÃ‚t remember straight away.
It does seem like that these transfers drag on with us way too long. IÃ‚m not mad bothered by Henen either, if he signs and actually plays some time then great.
Deulofeu though needs wrapping up ASAP because, the longer this drags on, you begin fearing snags that eventually become hurdles in completing the deal.

This Henen deal carries little risk, but IÃ‚ve always been alarmed by it. Honestly, it sounds like the kind of dodgy deal Harry would be involved in. I do not see the benefit for Olympiaokos, who seemed to have taken most of the risk for minimal financial benefit. ItÃ‚s a strange one.
We need to get Deulofeu signed, and concentrate on a creative player: A creative player who can also score goals and play wide and centrally. Personally IÃ‚d like to see us target Kagawa, but that may be overly hopeful.

One of the good things about this lad is that he can play on either wing comfortably and he moves quickly with good feet, something we will have in another winger (Deulofeu) when he signs.

The Ã‚Ã‚usual suspectsÃ‚Ã‚ will be the front and foremost to start the season and hopefully with the addition of Dellboy and Cleverley, the season will start well. Henen may have to wait in the wings much like other young Ã‚Ã‚prospectsÃ‚Ã‚.
32 Posted 24/06/2015 at 13:32:19
Guess what thatÃ‚s what most people have to do if they are paying money out to buy things, can we afford the purchase?, can we bring the costs down?, is it worth doing a quick deal? or could we wait and hope for a better deal?. Sometimes it pays to wait, other occasions it blows up in your face and you miss out, thatÃ‚s life IÃ‚m afraid, if you have oodles of money you can buy the odd pig in the poke for over the odds and absorb that cost ,the people at Goodison canÃ‚t do that they have to be careful, frustrating of course it is, annoying, sometimes.
Patience is the key word at all times both on and off the pitch, not a word that many of us enjoy but it is how it is.
BTW I wonder if the Henen deal is in any way linked to Mirallas returning to Greece as has been hinted by the Echo today.

IÃ‚ve even seen Everton fans on ToffeeWeb moaning that Liverpool always seem to wrap their deals up quickly with no fuss, whilst knowing Liverpool fans who moan like buggery that their club canÃ‚t even get simple transfers sorted like everyone else. IÃ‚ve had similar experiences with Tottenham fans.

Surely those in control of finances might consider a, relatively, small speculation for a possible vast accumulation.

I hope he is knocking on the door this season give Rom some competition, as Rom is lazy and complacent.

In the professional game, this comes also with the "money" thing and the "immediacy" thing. Give me a manager who can take a team in some turmoil and take three full seasons to produce a winning combination. Hopefully, we are starting to see this with RM and, add to the mix, he is putting together a younger squad, Ã‚posiiiiiiblyyÃ‚ with some depth Ã‚â€“ and this is without much disposable moulah. Could this mean a bright future???

Oh come off it. I swear people go out looking to be offended these days.
56 Posted 30/06/2015 at 12:06:40
Remember when Dennis Wise signed a player behind Kevin KeeganÃ‚s back based only on a YouTube skills and goals type video?
I guess this is the striker signing in then? Apparently Kone wants the chance to prove himself so expect Martinez to say heÃ‚s in a good moment or whatever and deserves another chance.

Maybe the fact that his Twitter post about the loan to Bolton was taken down almost immediately means that he wonÃ‚t be going out on loan, or that if he does, it may be short-term Ã‚â€“ rather than season-long. Hopefully the fact it was taken down so quickly isnÃ‚t indicative that he will not be signing for us after all.
