Now we will have to wait until the weekend against Stoke to see our new signing Oumar Niasse, due to the striker ineligible for Wednesday’s game against Newcastle United.

Until the next deadline day, we are signing off. Goodnight.

Everton set to sign Niasse

Byran Oviedo has attracted some attention today, most notably from Newcastle United and West Brom. Everton unsurprisingly not willing to let the Costa Rican leave.

Niasse has left the training ground! Is the deal done?!

Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal has been talking about his signing of Aiden McGeady and he seems very happy!

I’m very happy because first of all, we only want to bring in players if they can improve the team.

He is a player that adds extra quality and a player I know very, very well because when he played at Celtic, I was coach of Sporting and I tried to bring him to the club but it was not possible at that moment.

I am happy because he is a player that can improve the team and he will help us in the second part of the season, absolutely sure.

Waiting for the signing of Oumar Niasse, should be no doubt of that transfer now but awaiting official confirmation. In the meantime, here is a dog gif.
