Done Deal: Danjuma Joins Everton On Loan

Everton have confirmed the signing of Arnaut Danjuma on a season- long loan deal from LaLiga club Villarreal.

Danjuma was close to joining Everton in January, but instead linked up with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Nigerian-born forward will wear jersey number 10 at his new club.

The striker can play in a variety of attacking positions, including as a central striker where he often started for LaLiga club Villarreal.

Danjuma stated that Evertonians’ passion and manager Sean Dyche were key reasons behind him wanting to move to Merseyside this summer.

“It’s amazing to join Everton and I’m really happy to be here,” Danjuma told evertontv.

“It’s been a long time coming to join such a massive club as Everton and it makes me proud.

“I had interest from other clubs but there was a pull towards Everton because of the fans, the manager and the history of the Club and it’s second time lucky for me.

“I know I did not move to the Club in January, that was because there was some uncertainty over the manager situation at that time, but I think it makes it even more beautiful for me to join now. I am very grateful to be at the Club and I can’t wait to play in front of the fans as well.

“I hope to bring a lot of goals and a lot of assists. The manager has clearly improved the team and there is a process ahead with him in charge that I am very excited to be a part of.

“I am very eager to perform and very determined to contribute to the entire club. There’s no vein in my body that doubts my quality, and I’m very determined to now show that for the Evertonians.”

    This fool… I don’t know what CSN will even conceive sharing his stories here. We don’t want to know what goes on with him. He shunned Nigeria for 3Caps with the Netherlands in 5years.

    Nobody even reckons with him in the Netherlands, this is why we have often clamored for players like those foreign borns who are actually good and have identified with us like Dessers to really be treated well. Not just because he is a foreign born but because he is good and can do the job.

    If we must be honest as Super Eagles fans, after Victor Osimhen, the most clinical forward we have to have played for Super Eagles is Cyriel Dessers. Often, I wonder why we can’t have other strikers like Awoniyi, Dessers, Okereke and Victor Boniface start some games ahead of Osimhen.

    It is my belief thaf as far as it has been established that Osimhen is our numero uno centre forward. We should try to get an able deputy, I don’t believe games like those against the likes of Lesotho, Malawi, CAR, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe and those category of National Teams can’t be prosecuted with other strikers other than Osimhen.

    When Austin Okocha played the likes of Oruma, Obiorah,Choji,Ebiede and other budding talents who came up at that time were largely wasted, a situation that created a void long unplugged once JayJay Okocha retired…
