Valencia joins Everton on loan from West Ham

Enner Valencia has swapped West Ham for Everton, joining the Merseyside club on loan until the end of the season.

Everton has signed Ecuador striker Enner Valencia on a season-long loan from West Ham with an option to make the move permanent.

Valencia joined West Ham in July 2014 after a World Cup in which he scored twice for Ecuador.

But he has failed to make the desired impact at West Ham, scoring just 10 goals in 72 appearances in all competitions.

He will hope for better fortunes at Everton, which missed out on Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko. The France international has snubbed Everton to join Tottenham instead.

Everton has been busy in the transfer window. Ronald Koeman has added to his squad with the captures of Yannick Bolasie, Ashley Williams, Idrissa Gueye, Maarten Stekelenburg and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
