Everton thwarted in attempted Mouctar Diakhaby deal

France Football report that Premier League side Everton have failed in a bid to sign Lyon central defender Mouctar Diakhaby, despite the fact that they offered more than the €15m + bonuses for which he is joining Valencia for.

Diakhaby will join VCF in the coming hours after agreeing provisionally to a 5 year contract with the Spanish side.

The Lyon defender was also in contact with Newcastle, as well as Everton. The Toffees’ bid came at the beginning of the week, and was financially superior, but the player preferred to move to Spain, where he will be playing in the Champions’ League.
