Everton have signed Lokomotiv Moscows Oumar Niasse, but who is he? Roberto Martinez has spent £13. William Carrier Golden Knights Jersey .5m on the forward, making him the clubs third most expensive signing in history behind Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini.Heres all you need to know about him... ProfileName: Oumar NiasseAge: 25Place of Birth: Ouakam, SenegalFormer clubs: US Ouakam, Brann (loan), Akhisar Beledyespor, Lokomotiv MoscowPosition: Winger/forwardBackground Niasse (R) has been a prolific goalscorer for Lokomotiv Moscow Niasse started at hometown club Ouakam in Senegal in 2008 where he played for five years. After impressing there, he was loaned to SK Brann in Norway but only played three games as he had to return due to injury despite scoring twice.Niasse had a trial at St Etienne and was offered a contract, but he refused the deal because he felt he was not offered a satisfactory wage.Shortly afterwards, the Senegal international signed with Turkish club Hamza Hamzaoglu in August 2013, and scored 21 goals in 34 appearances.Before the 2014/15 season, he joined FC Lokomotiv Moscow for €5.5m. In his first season in the Russian Premier League, he got four goals and two assists. During this current 2015/16 season he has 12 goals and 10 assists and was named the Russian Premier League player of the year for 2015.The 25-year-old has helped the club to third place in the Russian Premier League, five points behind leaders CSKA Moscow, and have also qualified for the last 32 of the Europa League.On the international stage, Niasse has scored four goals in his four caps for Senegal.Style of play Niasse (C) is known for his strength and pace Niasse is renowned as a strong, pacey forward who is capable of playing on the wing or up front. Standing at 6ft 2in tall, he is known to be a hard worker defensively, which could make him a good fit for Martinezs high pressure system, and is also unafraid to shoot.For Lokomotiv, Niasse primarily plays as a target striker in a 4-3-3 formation, but at Everton he could play on the wing should Martinez see Lukaku as a stronger candidate for the usual lone striker role.What they say about him Lokomotiv Moscows coach Igor Cherevchenko Lokomotiv Moscow coach Igor Cherevchenko: Niasse is a good player, and I am not surprised that he is in demand.Lokomotiv Moscow teammate Alexsandr Semedov: Niasse is incredibly good. I didnt expect him to perform at such a high level this season. He dreams of playing in the Premier League.Sky Sports News HQ reporter Ben Ransom: Hes had a fantastic season in Russia - Russian Premier League player of the year - and has already scored 12 goals this season plus ten assists, so hes a player who can bring a lot of quality to Roberto Martinezs squad.What he says… Niasse is strong, Niasse is tall. If nothings going right, give Niasse the ball and he wont let you down Oumar Niasse Jose Mourinho was very keen to sign me, but unfortunately he was fired. I am trying not to get distracted. If there will be a specific offer, I might leave Lokomotiv.Niasse is strong, Niasse is tall. If nothings going right, give Niasse the ball and he wont let you down. What other forwards can do, Niasse can do better. Other forwards in Russia have to work hard to become as good as me Also See: Transfer Centre Latest transfer news Transfer betting Paper Talk Jason Garrison Golden Knights Jersey .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have recalled forward Kevin Porter and defenceman Chad Ruhwedel from the minors as part of a five-player roster shuffle made by the NHLs worst team.

Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. http:///...knights-jersey-c-26/ . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night.Liverpool have scrapped the controversial £77 ticket price and frozen the majority of amended prices for next season after last weekends protest by supporters. Thousands of Liverpool fans walked out in the 77th minute of their 2-2 draw with Sunderland at Anfield on Saturday in protest at the price rise to £77 of the most expensive general admission tickets.The club argued the proposed structure offered greater accessibility and affordability, with 45 per cent of match ticket prices decreasing, 64 per cent of season tickets reduced or staying the same in cost and around 1500 £9 tickets available for category C games. But an open letter from the clubs owners Fenway Sports Group, signed by John W. Henry, Tom Werner and Mike Gordon apologised to fans and revealed any changes to this seasons prices would be no more than marginal. Fans welcome Anfield U-turn Liverpool supporters union hope clubs owners have learned a lesson The letter read: It has been a tumultuous week. On behalf of everyone at Fenway Sports Group and Liverpool Football Club we would like to apologize for the distress caused by our ticket pricing plan for the 2016/17 season.The three of us have been particularly troubled by the perception that we dont care about our supporters, that we are greedy, and that we are attempting to extract personal profits at the clubs expense. Quite the opposite is true. Prime Minister David Cameron says something needs to be done to stop clubs raising ticket prices too quickly From our first days as owners we have understood that serving as custodians of this incredible institution is a distinct privilege and as such, we have been driven solely by the desire to return LFC to the pinnacle of football. In the world of modern football, growing the club in a sustainable way is essential to realizing this objective.We were strongly engaged in the process to develop the ticketing plan for 2016/2017. We met directly with representatives of LFCs Supporters Committee and along with LFC management, wholeheartedly agreed with major concerns raised, notably: access for local and young supporters; engagement and access to Anfield for local children; access to Premier League matches for those in Liverpool most challenged by affordability.. Vadim Shipachyov Golden Knights Jersey. We believe the plan successfully addressed these concerns and are disappointed that these elements have been either lost or, worse, characterized as cynical attempts to mask profiteering in the plan as a whole. Rather, we prefer to look at them as the parts of the ticketing plan we got right. Liverpool fans exited Anfield on 77 minutes against Sunderland On the other hand, part of the ticketing plan we got wrong.In addition to the other elements of the plan we proposed price increases on a number of tickets. These pricing actions generated growth in General Admission ticketing revenue on a like for like basis exclusive of revenue from newly added GA seats. We believed by delivering a vastly improved seat offering in what will be the newest stand in English football, concentrating the price increases on those tickets typically purchased by fans least sensitive to affordability, and for LFC to begin repaying the £120m advance from FSG for the new Main Stand that these increases were supportable even in the context of growth in revenues from the new Premier League TV deal.However, the widespread opposition to this element of the plan has made it clear that we were mistaken. Borussia Dortmund fans protested ticket prices by throwing tennis balls onto the pitch A great many of you have objected strongly to the £77 price level of our most expensive GA seats and expressed a clear expectation that the club should forego any increased revenue from raising prices on GA tickets in the current environment. Message received.Liverpools ticket initiatives, also announced last week, remain in place, including the provision of 20,000 tickets across the Premier League season available at a 50 per cent reduction for fans aged between 17 and 21, and 1,000 free tickets to school children recommended by their teachers.The changes announced by Liverpool are:• Removal of game categorisation - regardless of the opposition fans will pay the same price for matchday tickets.• The pricing of tickets will be readjusted to result in zero revenue growth from GA ticketing on a like for like basis.• Though individual ticket prices may move marginally from this season, we are freezing our 2016/17 GA ticket revenue at the 2015/16 level exclusive of newly added seats in the new Main Stand. • The price of our highest General Admission ticket will be frozen at the 2015/16 level - £59.• The price of our highest Season Ticket will be frozen at the 2015/16 level - £869. The lowest price reducing a further £25 from the 2015/16 level to £685, as well as all other tiers being frozen or reduced.• £9 GA seats will be offered for each and every Premier League match, an allocation of more than 10,000 tickets across the season.
