Everton have signed West Ham’s Enner Valencia after failing with a £30m offer for Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko, who instead joined Spurs.

Everton had tabled a huge bid for Sissoko on deadline day and it seemed earlier in the evening that he would be making the move to Goodison Park but instead opted for Spurs, with the lure of London thought to be key in his final decision.

After that disappointment, Everton quickly turned their attention to Valencia, who has joined on a season-long loan deal with the view to a permanent move further down the line.

Valencia has been allowed to leave the Hammers following boss Slaven Bilic’s recent capture of Simone Zaza from Juventus.
