Nigeria international Henry Onyekuru has joined Monaco on a five-year deal.
The 22-year-old leaves English Premier League side Everton having failed to play a single game for the club, since his £7 million move to the Merseyside from KAS Eupen two years ago.
Onyekuru spent the 2017/18 season on-loan at Belgium giants Anderlecht, before spending the previous campaign at Turkish Super Ligue club Galatasaray, also on-loan.
The Super Eagles winger scored 14 goals in 31 league appearances for Galatasaray, playing an integral role in helping the Istanbul club to league glory.
“I want to thank Everton for the opportunity and making it possible for me to experience the best year of my career at Galatasaray. My time in Turkey was nothing short of amazing! The supporters, the club and my teammates made me feel at home from Day 1! We made history Thank U [sic],” Onyekuru tweeted.
