Everton have confirmed the loan signing of Belgian forward David Henen.

The Toffees had been pushing to put the deal over the line, but saw a complex twist of events delay its completion. However, they have confirmed Henen is now at the club.

The 18-year-old left Belgian side Anderlecht last night to sign for Greek champions Olympiacos.

He was then immediately sent to Everton on a season-long loan deal, delighting boss Roberto Martinez.


"As we had said previously, he's someone whose potential we recognise and at this stage he will go into the Under-21 development squad", the Spaniard told the club's site.


"We are looking forward to working with him this season."

Everton have not confirmed whether they hold a purchase option as part of the loan.
