Nkounkou Seals Loan Switch To Standard Liege

Everton defender Niels Nkounkou has completed a season-long loan move to Belgian club Standard Liege.

French left-back Nkounkou joined Everton in the summer of 2020 following three years with Marseille in his homeland.

The 20-year-old, who was part of the France squad at this summer’s Olympic football tournament, made his Everton debut in a Carabao Cup victory over Salford City last September.

Nkounkou made six First-Team appearances in 2020/21 and has featured once this season, in the Carabao Cup second-round win at Huddersfield Town.
