Niasse in line for Everton debut


Oumar Niasse could make his Everton debut against West Brom on Saturday.

Niasse moved to Goodison Park in a £13.5million deal from Lokomotiv Moscow on transfer deadline day, but manager Roberto Martinez opted to leave him out of the matchday squad for the 3-0 win over Stoke.

The 25-year-old has not play a competitive game since December but he has been working hard in training and Martinez has indicated that he could feature against the Baggies.

"He had one full session with the team before the Stoke game but I thought it was probably a bit too early," Martinez told evertontv.

"This week has been completely different, he has had a really good working period and all he needs is some good solid work before he can compete in the team.

"The Premier League is a competition that you have to be ready in order to have an impact.

"It is important he gets the time and the understanding he needs but, at the same time, I have seen he is desperate to be involved."
