Oviedo Fee Agreed

Blues agree fee for FC Copenhagen man.

Watch Video Oviedo Fee Agreed
Everton can confirm a fee has been agreed with FC Copenhagen for the transfer of Bryan Oviedo.
 
The versatile Costa Rica-born star is now en route to Merseyside to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms over a switch to the Blues.
 
Oviedo is set to switch from the Danish outfit, where he has become a regular, operating at both left-back and on the left side of midfield.

Everton assistant boss Steve Round believes that, should the player receive a work permit and agree personal terms, he will become a strong addition to the Blues' ranks.

He told evertonfc.com: "In terms of him as a player he can fill in multiple positions for us, he will be a big asset if we can get him.

"He can play left-back left midfield and left wing, all the way down the left, which will help us and give us good cover in the squad.

"I have seen him on a regular basis, I have been abroad and watched him, as have all the scouts and the manager. As yet his is not our player, we have work permits to get, that's why the manager isn't doing the media today, he's in London trying to tie it up and finalise it."
 
Before moving to Denmark Oviedo, 22, played for Deportivo Saprissa in his homeland. His move to Europe followed an impressive showing for Costa Rica’s Under-19s a they finished fourth in the 2009 Under-20 World Cup.
 
He has 13 senior caps for the Central American nation and won two Danish Leagues and one Danish Cup, the latter while on loan at FC Nordsjaelland.

Victor TayGreat move by the club!

David CallinOviedo looks like he would be a great signing. Its been a very productive transfer window - well done Mr Moyes and Mr Kenwright IM(&K)WT

Neal RixLooks a good move to cover Baines/Pienaar. Still think we need another striker though and if Jack Butland rumours are true......yet another master stroke from super David Moyes !!

Scott GinnettBaines is not going anywhere, everyone relax. This is cover which we really needed! There's a feeling about the side this year, could be a special year! Anyone else sense that?

Friday 31st August 13:33 Report Comment

Neal RixTotally agree. I reckon if we can keep up the good start and finish in true Everton style we'll get another long awaited crack at the Champions League. COYB....IMWT !!!!!

Minik HansenIsn't Costa Rica in Central America? The text says South America... and the text is referring to Oviedo as a Dane ?? Anyways very much welcome to Oviedo, been a great transfer window!!! COYB.

Friday 31st August 12:37 Report Comment

Andres AvilaCorrect, Costa Rica is in Central America, not South America (common mistake by many). About the Dane thing, what they mean is he's coming from the Danish team FC Copenhagen.

gerard kearneyTop 4 season this year with strength and depth to the squad hope coleman get's a chance to show what he can do at right back COYB

Friday 31st August 11:21 Report Comment

Alan MorganAnother shrewd bit of business if it proceeds and providing we can keep this squad together I think we can start to look ahead with great optimism and perhaps emulate the successful 80s?

Friday 31st August 11:12 Report Comment

vince williamsAnything that sounds slightly like a Baines replacement make me nervous around deadline day.

Friday 31st August 11:07 Report Comment

Steven HarrisonJust hope this is cover and doesn't mean Baines is going.

Friday 31st August 10:48 Report Comment

Oscar Knows His HistoryFinally cover for Baines at left back - great move. Now we don't have to rely on Distin moving across again if Bainesey gets injured!

Friday 31st August 10:32 Report Comment

sam carwinLet's hope this is to cover Pienaar when he goes to the AFCON, rather than a replacement for Baines.

Friday 31st August 10:29 Report Comment

Liam GraingerGood news (if Baines ISN'T leaving) But Dave!!!!!!! we need a new RB too it's the weaker position:( !!!!!! Ta.
