HULL CITY have confirmed the double signing of Everton striker Oumar Niasse and Portugeuse midfielder Evandro.

Niasse, 26, arrives at the KCOM Stadium on a loan deal until the end of the season from Everton, while 30-year-old Evandro has put pen-to-paper on a two-and-a-half year deal after joining from FC Porto for an undisclosed fee, subject to international clearance.

Known for his pace, strength and high work-rate, Senegalese international Niasse began his career with US Ouakam in his homeland before spells at Brann, Akhisar Belediyespor and Lokomotiv Moscow, where his impressive form in front of goal earned a big money move to Goodison Park 12 months ago.

The striker has three goals in eight caps for his country and will add strength to the Tigers’ front line for the remainder of the campaign.

Evandro, meanwhile, is reunited with boss Marco Silva who he played under during his time at Portuguese side Estoril.

An exciting attacking midfielder, Evandro began his career with Brazilian side Atletico Paranaense in 2005 and has since gone on to represent eight clubs including Palmeiras, Atletico Mineiro, Vitoria, Red Star and Estoril.

More recently, Evandro moved to Portuguese giants FC Porto in 2014 and made 58 appearances for the club in all competitions, 11 of which came in the Champions League, scoring eight goals
