Everton completed the signing of Henry Onyekuru in June 2017, before immediately sending the forward out on a season-long loan to Anderlecht.
Onyekuru joined the Blues from Belgian outfit Eupen on a five-year contract for an undisclosed fee to become the Club’s third signing of the 2017 summer transfer window.
He arrived at Goodison Park on the back of a prolific 2016/17 season, where he finished the Pro League’s joint-top scorer with 22 goals.
In his two years with Eupen, he averaged a goal every two appearances, leaving the club with the eye-catching statistics of 30 goals in 60 matches in all competitions.
Born in Onitsha, Nigeria, Onyekuru joined the esteemed Aspire Academy aged 13 and spent five years at the Doha-based facility before joining up with Eupen.
He is a Nigeria international, having made his senior debut for the Super Eagles against Togo in June 2017.
Having joined Anderlecht on loan from Everton last summer, Onyekuru got off to a flying start for the Belgian giants. He hit 10 goals in 28 games before suffering a knee ligament injury in December.
The injury ruled the pacy forward out of the rest of the season as well as the FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Contracted until: June 2022
