Everton transfer news: David Henen close to £1.5m switch
Roberto Martinez reveals deal is close for Anderlecht teenager
Wednesday 23 July 2014
Everton manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed a deal is close for Anderlecht teenager David Henen as the Spaniard looks to bolster the club's youth ranks.
The 18-year-old Belgian will go into the under-21 squad once his reported £1.5million move has been done.
"It is in the process of being completed," Martinez told the Liverpool Echo.
"He's a young, talented footballer who represents Belgium in the lower teams, in the under-18s and has had good experience in going to France.
"He is a bright boy and we feel he is something different that we haven't got in the under-21s so we are hoping he is going to be giving us something different in that group."
He continued: "We want a strong group. We have already got talented and very interesting footballers and I think David can fit in really well in that environment."
