Henry Onyekuru has left Everton for Monaco signing a five-year deal.

According to Goal.com, he has completed the transfer, on a deal that will keep him at the principality until 2024.

The French Ligue 1 club announced the arrival of the Nigeria international from England on a permanent deal, through their Twitter account.
Including a statement that read:

“Nigeria international Henry Onyekuru has completed a permanent switch from Everton to Monaco.”

” A deal which will keep him at the club until 2024.”

The Nigerian could not play for the Merseysiders, as he was unable to get international clearance and a work permit. He arrived in 2017 and never played a minute for the club.

He was loaned out Anderlecht for the 2017-18 campaign. He also completed a spell at Turkish giants Galatasary.

While in Istanbul, Onyekuru scored 16 goals in 44 appearances during a campaign that saw them win the Super Lig title.

The 22-year-old’s joins Leonardo Jardim’s squad, who have been in need of reinforcements.

They have sold plenty of talent over the last two or three years at Monaco but failed to replace time.

This transfer window has seen an up turn in the recruitment side of transfer activity.

Signings include:

Senegal’s Seydou Sy, Morocco’s Youssef Ait Bennasser, South Africa’s Lyle Foster.

Monaco will be hoping for a better season than last. A season that saw them fire Jardim, hire Henry, fire henry and re-hire Jardim.

They finished 17th, just above the relegation zone.
