Everton forward Oumar Niasse is believed to have agreed a deal with Turkish giants Galatasaray, assuming he can get the all-clear from the Toffees to leave the club, according to Fanatik.

The Senegal international has not been able to get anything going in his spell on Merseyside, and having fallen down the pecking order, he is looking for a move away to reignite his career.

Niasse arrived at Goodison Park from Lokomotiv Moscow in January 2016, but is yet to make 40 appearances for the club in what has been a disappointing time with the Toffees.

The striker did go out on loan during his time at Everton to move to Hull City, where he worked under Marco Silva, and when the Portuguese boss replaced Sam Allardyce in the hotseat it was hoped that a reunion with his former manager would see him kick on.

That has not happened however, as he has played just 48 minutes for the Merseyside outfit all season, and they all came in substitute appearances.

Everton are suddenly not short of attacking talent. They have Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin who are used to playing through the middle, while Richarlison played in the central position in the recent win at Leicester City.

In the wider areas the likes of Bernard and Theo Walcott are establishing themselves as key players and then there is Gylfi Sigurdsson and Andre Gomes to accommodate too, so finding regular action is unlikely for Niasse.

It is believed that the Senegalese forward has agreed terms over a move to Galatasaray, but the two clubs have not even begun to discuss a deal for him.

With Silva expected to look to strengthen his personnel in January, it is unlikely that he will stand in the way of Niasse departing, unless there is a serious injury crisis between now and then, so it could be that he has played his final match for Everton.
