Sports writer for the Daily Mail, Riath Al-Samarrai says the deal to loan Enner Valencia to Everton is just about done.
Al-Samarrai posted in the last few minutes “Told that Everton deal to loan Enner Valencia from West Ham is just about done. Swansea miss out.”
Swansea appear to have already admitted defeat saying one or two loan deals didn’t work out.
The Everton deal to sign Valencia for the rest of the season is said to include paying Valencia’s £40,000 wages per week in full plus a £1.5m loan fee with an option to buy at £14.5m.
The Everton deal will have to be completed without meeting Valencia as the forward is with Ecuador preparing for tomorrow’s World Cup qualifier against Brazil in Quito. The deal has been complicated as both Valencia and his agent are in a different time zone in South America.
