According to the Liverpool Echo, Oumar Niasse is ready to accept that his Everton career may be coming to an end.

The forward joined Everton in the January transfer window in a £13.5 million deal from Lokomotiv Moscow.

He had been a long-term target for then manager Roberto Martinez, who had seen him star in a Europa League game against Sporting Lisbon.

The move proved to be a disastrous one though as he failed to prove his fitness and managed just a handful of disappointing appearances at the end of the season.

It had been reported by the Mirror that Ronald Koeman was not impressed and was ready to let him leave the club this summer.

Indeed, he appeared to indicate that was the case last week as he left him out of the club’s pre-season friendly win over Barnsley.

Niasse had been determined to prove his worth, but the Liverpool Echo now reports that he has accepted his short stint at Goodison Park may be coming to an end.

It remains to be seen if he does secure a move elsewhere, with Galatasaray thought to be admirers.
