Soccer – Martinez backs Niasse to impress


Roberto Martinez is confident that Oumar Niasse will make a massive impact at Everton after snapping up the Senegal international striker.

Everton wrapped up the £13.5million signing of the 25-year-old Lokomotiv Moscow forward on Monday and he should be available for the weekend clash with Stoke City.
Martinez, who allowed Steven Naismith to join Norwich City last month, is thrilled with the capture of Niasse, saying: “We are delighted because Oumar is a player we have been following for a long time.
“He is the right personality and someone who is in a very good moment of his career. He has had a lot of success in Russia and he brings a different quality to what we already have in our squad.”
Everton are 8/1 with Bet365 to beat Newcastle United 1-0 at Goodison Park on Wednesday evening and can be backed at 13/8 to keep a clean sheet in the encounter.
