Everton fans react as Djibril Sidibe looks set to sign for the club

Lots of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was reported by L’Equipe that the club are set to sign Monaco right-back Djibril Sidibe ahead of West Ham and Crystal Palace, who were also keen.

The 18-cap France international will reportedly join on an initial one-year loan deal for a cost of €2.5m (£2.3m), and the Merseysiders will also have the option to make the deal permanent next summer for a sum of €14m (£12.9m).

Sidibe, 27, made 26 appearances for Monaco in Ligue 1 last term, recording two assists.

Marco Silva was said to be keen to sign a right-back to provide competition for Seamus Coleman before the deadline, and he looks set to get his wish in the shape of the 6 foot Frenchman – the right-back department had been weakened by Jonjoe Kenny’s departure for Schalke.
