Niasse may go on loan to Fenerbahçe

| Monday, 04 September 2017  40 Comments  [Jump to last]

Reports say Fenerbahçe are ready to offer €2m to loan Oumar Niasse from Everton for the rest of the season.

Despite Everton accepting a £10m bid from Crystal Palace, Oumar Niasse's transfer to the Eagles never materialised on deadline day, with claims that agent's fees stopped the Senegalese's move to Selhurst Park.

This has signalled interest from Fenerbahçe, according to claims in the Turkish media. The Istanbul club have until Friday to agree a deal with Everton, before their transfer window closes, and negotiations are reported to be ongoing.

Niasse has continuously been overlooked by Ronald Koeman, ever since the Dutchman arrived at Goodison Park last summer. He's yet to play a game under Koeman, and last season was sent out on loan to Hull City.

After accepting Crystal Palace's offer for Niasse, Everton might not be happy with a €2m loan bid from Fenerbahçe, but if they want to offload the forward at least until next summer, this might be their only option.

By my reckoning, we currently only have 20 fit senior outfield players at the club. That's including the ones Koeman doesn't fancy and is reluctant to play. Hardly makes sense to ship more out when we're still in 4 competitions.

Regardless of the player leaving or staying, agent's fees killing a deal is a fuckin' disgrace. These parasites take big bucks and contribute bugger all. Even the daftest player should be able to do his own deals without these twats.

I wish the lad luck because we all know he has not had a good experience with Everton.

Brian, very good. Brings "transfer windows" to life!
Gordon Crawford

We should let him go. To turn down this loan deal would be cruel, especially if we aren't going to play him.

Free Niasse!

The Free Niasse movement seems to be gaining some momentum. Should we print off some tee-shirts?
Raymond Fox

He scores goals, we are overflowing with goal scorers, not!

Put the lad in the squad and give him a chance.

I doubt our manager will, so take the £2 million.

Brian Wilkinson

It just does not add up, letting the guy go on loan, I would have said beforehand he has no chance of playing, but then we give him squad number 34 – why would we suddenly give the player a squad number if we are going to loan the player out.

I would keep hold until January with the lack of strikers we have and give the guy a run out from the bench.

A couple of injuries in attack and we are goosed.

Paul Hewitt

I can't see why Niasse hasn't been given a chance. He must have really pissed Koeman off somehow. He scored some good goals for Hull last season.
James Stewart
16 Posted 04/09/2017 at 23:14:18
He is an Everton player; we don't have any other strikers – why loan him out? Makes no sense.
Gordon Crawford
17 Posted 04/09/2017 at 23:59:29
Colin (#12) we definitely should make tee-shirts, banners, and flags etc. :)
Henry Lloyd
18 Posted 05/09/2017 at 01:45:16
This is all so typical Everton This player can score goals as he demonstrated against The Red Shite! He deserves a chance and I am very unhappy as to why Koeman does not like him. Disgusting treatment of a player and this scenario is pissing me off!
Kristian Boyce
19 Posted 05/09/2017 at 02:53:52
He scored 4 in 17 at Hull, not really the prolific goalscorer like everyone is making him out to be.
Daniel Lim
20 Posted 05/09/2017 at 03:37:33
I'm not saying he's prolific, but when you said 4 in 17, how many of the 17 as starter, how many as substitute? How many minutes he played when as substitute?
Ernie Baywood
21 Posted 05/09/2017 at 05:27:52
Don't get me wrong, he's crap.

But we have one striker at the club besides him. You couldn't just ignore him.

Michael Penley
22 Posted 05/09/2017 at 06:29:12
I don't understand this "agent's fees" business at all.

You'd think that it would be such a good career move for Niasse to finally get some playing time at Palace that he'd be willing to pay the agent's fees, or for the agent to waive part of it or somehow work something out. But instead he is left stranded. How is this serving Oumar at all?

Wouldn't he be better off without an agent at all?

Nigel Munford
23 Posted 05/09/2017 at 07:19:09
What I'm confused about is the different transfer windows. Okay, you can allow for time zones, but over a week difference? Turkish clubs can take our players but we aren't allowed to take Turkish players because our window is shut, bizarre!

If a club's window is open they should be able to do business with any club, or unify the windows.

Niasse for Hull City... played 1095 minutes, 17 games, 12 starts, 4 goals. So a goal every 250 mins. Hardly the best stats but how many chances did hull create??

Personally I would give him a chance as we have limited strikers, but there is no way Koeman would play him. He would rather put Robles up front than have Niasse back in the team.

Tony Everan
25 Posted 05/09/2017 at 09:56:17
Once upon a time there was a match against Spurs... 0-0 20 mins left, Niasse on the bench.

Koeman has a brainstorm: "I will chuck my only senior striker on. 88 mins, Super Oumar gets on the end of a wicked Sigurdsson cross and bangs in the winner. An Everton career is born.

And they all lived happily ever after.

James Watts
26 Posted 05/09/2017 at 10:18:48
Tony (#24). Only problem with that is Koeman would probably throw him on as a right back!
Steve Ferns
27 Posted 05/09/2017 at 12:20:11
Where can I buy one of these tee-shirts?

Also, would a better song for Niasse not be to adapt John Lennon's "Give Peace a Chance"?

Or maybe ask Bob Dylan to rework his Hurricane song?

Yes, here's the story of Oumar Niasse,
The man that Koeman came to blame
For somethin' that he never done.
Not given a locker, but one time he could-a been
The champion of the world...

Evertonworld is not a happy place right now is it.
Kim Vivian

Too right, Andrew. I just want to get on with Saturday in the hope we can paint a silver lining, although I am expecting the recent usual despite being at home where we should be giving it a go.

How can agent fees scupper any deal? Shouldn't agent fees be a fixed percentage?
Will Mabon
31 Posted 05/09/2017 at 19:30:07
David, I tend to disbelieve this as the real reason for the deal failing.
Steve Ferns
32 Posted 05/09/2017 at 19:50:40
Why Will? We're not talking a few quid here, we are talking many many millions.

When people talk about spending £150m or so this summer, that figure does not include agent fees, or the other hidden costs. I reckon we could add (or subtract depending on whether the agent fees are included in the transfer fee) £25m to £50m as to what we have spent on agents in both purchases and sales, and in failed purchases and sales.

Tapping up players costs money. If it's true we tried to sign Jimenez on deadline day, you can rest assured we set a team of agents to work to sound him and the club out and to get a deal in place. Even though it never happened, they will still want paying.

Frank Wade

There are huge amounts of cash paid to agents to complete transfers. For what it's worth, the Football Manager PC game indicates an agent fee of £450k and a player signing on fee of £1.2m for a team buying Niasse for a knock down price of £5m in August 2017.

I don't know what contract Niasse has entered into with his agent, presumably the same agent would have been handsomely recompensed for the £13m move to Everton. If he is bound to a contract he may not be able to give him his marching orders over the failed Palace move.

Strange that we include Niasse in Premier League registration squad but not in the Europa Cup squad.

Drew O'Neall
34 Posted 05/09/2017 at 21:59:45
There's a reason he won't be forced out. He's on £55k a week.
Terence Tyler
35 Posted 08/09/2017 at 08:48:32
He will not be going to Fenerbahçe, they are sighing Janssen from Spurs.
Joe Hurst
36 Posted 08/09/2017 at 19:08:00
They may be signing someone else on loan...

There are players and fans in the Super Lig who would hang him out to dry, if he carries on with his customary shenanigans, I'm sure.

Will Mabon
37 Posted 21/09/2017 at 07:11:35
King Oumar is going nowhere...
John Smith
38 Posted 21/09/2017 at 08:51:06
I've been thinking since we got him that we give him a go. We loaned him out and he scored two goals vs Liverpool. None of our players have done that in at least a decade.

I watched four or five hull games and he was at times magnificent. I don't understand judging a player when he's injured or in pre-season or before you've seen him in a run of games. Niasse was in all three boats.

Something is fishy behind scenes. Like the club is loathe to pay some scummy agent his fee if we played him. Something doesn't add up. Or Koeman is just stubborn and childish.

The lad is on the verge of becoming a cult hero. Made up for him. Handled the situation with dignity and remained professional throughout. Complete opposite of Rom.
