Super Eagles star Henry Onyekuru has joined Monaco on a five-year deal from Premier League side Everton.
Onyekuru spent two seasons as an Everton player although he could not make a single appearance for the Toffees due to work permit issues.
The 22-year-old was sent out on loan twice, first to Anderlecht and then Galatasaray where he won the league and cup double last season.
Now his time at Everton has come to an end with the transfer to Monaco for an undisclosed fee, although it has been reported that the deal is around £12m.
“AS Monaco are delighted to announce the signing of Henry Onyekuru 🇳🇬 from Everton. Our new attacking midfielder joins us on a 5-year deal,” the club announced on Twitter.
“I want to thank @everton for the opportunity and making it possible for me to experience the best year of my career at @galatasaray,” Onyekuru said on Twitter.
“My time in Turkey was nothing short of amazing! The supporters, the club and my teammates made me feel at home from Day 1! We made history Thank U.”
The forward becomes the sixth Nigerian to play for Monaco after Victor Ikpeba, Sani Keita, Lukman Haruna, Rabiu Afolabi and Elderson Echiejile.
