1024 Oumar Niasse

Biography

Senegalese striker Niasse joined the Tigers on loan in January 2017, to help rebuild a career that foundered during an ill-fated spell at Everton.  He immediately scored goals in the League Cup and the League, and showed a fearsome workrate while at times providing little end product.  His best form came when he combined with Abel Hernandez as twin strikers.

Niasse scored two goals in every 3 games during a six year career for unheralded Senegalese side US Ouakam, form that encouraged a 2013 move to mid-ranking Turkish team Akhisar Belediyespor.  A successful Super Lig season encouraged Lokomotiv Moscow to part with 5.5 million euros for Niasse’s services, as he continued to impress.  In 2016 Oumar moved to Everton, immediately getting the unearned reputation for being a poor signing.  By the time he came to Hull, Niasse was training away from the first team and had no squad number.

Niasse is a Senegalese international having made his senior debut in 2014.
