Everton, Hull and Baggies complete late deals

Everton have signed West Ham striker Enner Valencia on a season-long loan.

Valencia has three years remaining on his current deal with the Hammers but the loan agreement includes the option of a permanent move to Goodison Park.

West Ham bought the 26-year-old from Mexican side Pachuca for a £12million fee two years ago and since joining the club he has scored eight goals in 51 Premier League appearances.

He will join up with his new team-mates after the international break.

Meanwhile, Hull have brought in Dynamo Kiev striker Dieumerci Mbokani, AZ Alkmaar midfielder Markus Henriksen and Manchester United's James Weir.

Mbokani has moved to the Tigers on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent deal with Henriksen agreeing a loan deal, although he will sign a permanent contract when the January transfer window openers.

Weir will be reunited with former United team-mate Will Keane and he is excited at getting to work at his new club.

"I've played with 'Keano' a few times and he's a great player," Weir told the club's official website. "I'm looking forward to linking up with him again.

"It's an important time in my career and I think every player of my age wants to try and start playing regular first team football.

"I couldn't be happier to join Hull and really get my career started.

"The key thing for me is that I can be a regular part of the first team squad here and I hope I can help as the club continues to move forward.

"I'm just looking forward to cracking on now and getting started here.

"It will be an exciting time once the international break is over and I can't wait to meet the rest of the lads."

Elsewhere, Hal Robson-Kanu has joined West Brom on a two-year deal.

The 27-year-old has not played since representing Wales at Euro 2016 after allowing his Reading contract to run down and he is looking forward to joining West Brom after the international break.

"It was an important decision for me and my family and we took our time," he explained.

"But it's a fantastic club and manager and I'm really happy to be here.

"I'm particularly pleased to be back in the Premier League. I am grateful for everything that Reading have done for me and I enjoyed my time there.

"But it's great to take this step."
