Everton fans happy Niasse is staying put

Everton have been in need of firepower all season, so it would not have made much sense for the club to offload one of their forward players.

Rumours have surrounded Oumar Niasse due to the 27-year-old’s lack of regular game time at Goodison Park this season.

The Senegal international was brought in from the cold by former manager Ronald Koeman earlier in the season, but he is still yet to have a regular run out in the team.

In total, Niasse has made 15 appearances in all competitions, but only five of those outings have been starts.

Despite this, the forward has netted seven goals and created one assist, with his most recent hit coming against West Bromwich Albion at the weekend.

Niasse scored Everton’s only goal of the game as they recorded a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park.

Since the encounter, Sam Allardyce, who replaced Koeman as manager in November, has addressed rumours about his striker’s future.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the experienced coach has confirmed that no transfer will be sanctioned.

“No I can’t let Niasse go, there’s no danger of that. The hardest thing to come here in January is to come and play up front. And there is no way we can let Oumar go.”

Everton fans have now given their reactions to Allardyce’s comments.
