Niasse returns to Everton from Hull

Wednesday, 24 May, 2017 49comments  |  Jump to most recent
Hull City have elected not to sign Oumar Niasse on a permanent basis, at least for now.

The Yorkshire club had an option to sign the striker for around £10m if his loan spell was successful but their relegation from the Premier League has most likely dashed his hopes. The Senegalese was among the players listed as returning to their parent clubs on Hull's official website today.

Niasse, who joined Everton for £13.5m last year, was told he has no future at Goodison Park by Ronald Koeman and he eventually secured a temporary move to Hull in January.

Four goals in 17 appearances as the Tigers mounted what looked at one stage might be a successful bid to avoid the drop endeared him to their supporters but with manager Marco Silva's future uncertain and the club having to take stock as they prepare for the Championship, Hull have elected not to take up their option on Niasse at this time.

The parachute payments that relegated clubs receive from the Premier League may enable Hull to sign the 26-year-old on a permanent basis this summer — wages would be a significant stumbling block, however — but for now Niasse remains on Everton's books.

He's back, the lad! Gentlemen, we have our answer, our two-pronged killer attack – Niasse and Valencia.

Onwards and upwards.

Don't forget ' and the way Koeman treated him. Totally unprofessional'

He'll be like a new signing! Lukaku who!

All these comments may equally apply to Barkley in due course. Give it time..

"All these comments may equally apply to Barkley in due course. Give it time.."

Well, that would give us two members of 'The Fellowship Of The Ron'd': 'Aventgorn' and 'Lockerless'. Just need another seven then.

Does it mean the club have to buy a new locker for him now?

Jeezus, I had forgotten about him.

Thank God! I was really concerned that we would lose him.

I think Hull and Everton had an agreement as part of the loan that if they stayed up they MUST buy Niasse for £10 million but if they were relegated then this would not come into force.

Apparently, Burnley, Watford and Bournemouth are interested!

I heard from a reliable source who knows someone who works at the club that Barcelona have enquired about Niasse.
Jack Convery
20 Posted 24/05/2017 at 22:16:06
Gave his all at Hull and any manager can't ask for more. Just not good enough and the £10m we gave Martinez should be returned to us asap to pay for his transfer. He will be loaned out again and Burnley could be a good bet.
Oliver Molloy
21 Posted 24/05/2017 at 22:18:13
Or maybe he will turn up at Newcastle with Barkley!

Chatting about Barcelona, they appear to have no interest in re-signing Deulofeu and Koeman wants him back now.

John Davies

Don't be knocking the lad too much people. Sure Niasse is not even close to being who we want to see at Goodison Park but that's not his fault. It was the arrogant, deluded, demented, up-his-own-arse Spanish prick Martinez who signed him. Knock that bellend, not Niasse.
Darryl Ritchie

I have no problems with Niasse. Koeman does, though.
James Watts
24 Posted 24/05/2017 at 23:20:15
Great news. With this lad coming back and the fact it's looking like we're signing the Southampton 3rd choice right back on a free, we'll be in touching distance of the top 4 now. Who needs to spend money to compete eh?

Strewth... people, just calm down.
Denis Richardson
26 Posted 24/05/2017 at 23:47:54
He only scored one goal less than our £50m-rated main attacking midfielder...

And he only played half the season....

For a club that went down...

Just saying...

I'm over the moon at this news. Lol.
John Pierce

He did okay at Hull, showed why he was left lockerless with some first touches bigger than some goal kicks.

However, he also scored a few at Premier League level, Liverpool and United amongst the victims.

So cannot see him leaving, why should he? He's done nothing wrong.

I see him in the team for the Europa League qualifiers and helping us out there, but he will probably go back on loan to a lower Premier League club.

We really are a badly run club. £13 million for a player we cant sell in the bargain basement basket.

Paying off a sacked manager who truly was awful, and paying £6 million a year for a manager who can't get a win away from home, and plays shite football.

Yet, come August, the Old Lady will be packed to the rafters with renewed hope of us turning that never-ending corner.

Rooney and Niasse upfront – a dream partnership. I can see it now...

TBH I kind of hope the club shuts down. Then we can all be put out of our misery. This kinda crap is just too much

At least he's proved something at Hull – not to us but to other Premier League clubs. He may make it as a squad player somewhere and can (somehow) score goals – including against Liverpool.

I guess we will still be paying a chunk of his wages for the remaining 4 years of his contract but ho hum v time to move on.

Will Mabon

Mark – excellent!

Dennis Richardson (#26). A very good point. Anyone who can score goals in the Premier League against the likes of Liverpool and Man. Utd, no matter how clumsy and ungainly they may appear to be, must be worth something to somebody.

Just another point, how many goals has our much vaunted, world class (his words not mine), striker, the one and only Romelu Lukaku, scored in the last three seasons against those same two opponents? Like you... just saying.

It was not the lads fault that a dickhead valued him so highly. Criticism should be directed toward that unknown idiot.

"And he only played half the season."

He played 12 games which is less than one third of the season, while Barkley had a whole season and way more starts.

Shane Corcoran

Dan Davies, is he off to United?
Dan Egerton
40 Posted 25/05/2017 at 12:20:31
Are all these "clumsy" calls due to some mistakes he made during pre-season when he wasn't match fit?

I saw just about all his games when he played at Hull and I didn't see any clumsiness. Can someone post a video of his current clumsiness (and not one from a year ago)?

Raymond Fox

There's some sad cases on here who seem to delight at slagging off all and sundry. Niasse did a lot better at Hull than some of our 'stars' did in the same period!

Oh, I forgot our manager said he wasn't good enough, so of course all you who like to be in with the 'in crowd' will agree.

He's like a new signing!!!
Clive Rogers

Kenwright should stump up £10m or so as compensation, from what he got from Moshiri for his shares, as he was the idiot who appointed the idiot who signed him.
Paul Kossoff

Give the lad a chance, he has to be better than Kone and we've put up with that useless prat for four years!

Paul (#44),

Koeman has told him he will never play for the first team again.

One more goal and he would have been the second highest league goalscorer at the club... in a fraction of the games.
Alexander Murphy

Ernie, now that really is a scary statistic.

Can people not come up a better gag than 'he'll be like a new signing'? Struth!

Couldn't Niasse's Hull career be summed up by something like: 'Sometimes ungainly, sometimes raw, but scored a few important goals'.

Is that really so bad?!

Jon Withey
51 Posted 17/06/2017 at 09:57:07
Doesn't matter how good or bad he is, Koeman wants rid – given the silly money thrown around at the moment, surely somebody will want to pay £10m for someone who scores goals in the Premier League.
