Everton’s Valencia wage deal!

koemanEverton have agreed to pay the whole of Enner Valencia’s wages during his loan spell at the club.

Such was Toffees manager Ronald Koeman’s enthusiam to take our mis-firing striker that he gave the thumbs up to paying the entire personal terms in order to get the player into Goodison Park.

Koeman left his move late with ClaretandHugh being told by Hammers sources that there was no contact from the Merseyside club until “earlier this week.”

And once talks had started there was no stopping them with the Toffees agreeing to everything the Irons wanted.

We were told: “The first contact came at the start of the week and it was clear that this was going to be a deal that would suit both sides.

“The £1.5 million loan fee involved was agreed along with Everton taking on the full responsibility for wages and an agreement that we would make money were the deal to become permanent with a price of £14.5m being agreed.”

  1. Smacks of desperation from Everton doesn’t it.

  2. Their only other signing was bolassie wasn’t it? Maybe he thought fast runner on the left. What I need is fast runner on the right to balance things up.

    • AshleyWilliams from Swansea to replace Stones was a good buy, there were a couple of other minor signings – Steckelenberg etc.

  3. It’s a good deal for all parties £1.5 mill for a season and about the same in wages. No lose gamble for them if he’s no good we see him next preseason then the site will go into a wetties style meltdown hahaha

  4. Very strange – this deal becomes more mystifying the more you hear about it!

    You’d think that Everton would have been in a strong bargaining position with West Ham being pretty desperate to get him off the books, and we now hear they were willing to agee to everything – I just don’t get it!

    It would be a miracle if the final £14.5 million transfer actually went through – what a coup that would be!

  5. As has been said already it smacks of desperation.Other targets like Manolo Gabbiadini fall by the way side & they go hunting for a quick buy.He has been available all summer,if Koeman was such an admirer why rush it through on the last day.A panic purchase for me.

  6. Mushrooms lads , just mushrooms !!!. 😉

  7. If they were agreeing to everything we should have inserted a no. Of games clause that makes it permanent instead of a option. Something we may regret not doing next year.

  8. Did any1 see the enner Valencia fact file just come up on Swansea’s official site lmao see it isn’t just our club
