The departure of Moise Kean to Paris Saint-Germain was confirmed by Everton on a season-long loan.
Last summer, Kean was a big Everton signing, but after joining from Juventus, he struggled to live up to expectations.
In his first season in England, the Italian striker scored just twice in the Premier League, having been restricted to just six league starts.
And although he began his second season in the Carabao Cup with two goals, his struggles led to reports that after only one year, Everton could get rid of him.
That has now materialized, with PSG bringing him for the season to France. The Ligue 1 champions, however, do not have the luxury of buying him.
At Goodison Park, Kean remains under contract until 2024.
‘Proud’ Kean to join PSG
Kean explained his enthusiasm for joining the finalists of the Champions League upon confirmation of the move.
“I’m very proud and delighted to become a player in Paris Saint-German,” he told the PSG website. It’s one of the best clubs in the world, as illustrated by last season’s Champions League campaign, where they reached the final.
I am happy to be joining such an ambitious club in my country with such a great reputation. I look forward to playing with some of the world’s greatest players.
