Sounds to me like there was some work permit issues, Arsenal seemed interested and some reports that he got a work permit. But if he had got one, why did Arsenal not get him and why are we loaning to Anderlecht. Going to Anderlecht for a year would make a lot of sense if it allows him to get citizenship in Belgium.

Anderlecht seemed very keen, but knew they would be outbid on wages, it makes the development curve a little less steep and keeps him playing, developing. But he has only played 1 international friendly at start of the month, so would probably need special dispensation to get work permit. Another year in Belgium and it's no longer an issue.

Here's a translation from a Belgian site.

Everton snatches talented Henry Onyekuru ... and lends it to Anderlecht

It was one of the sagas of the summer market, it has just found its epilogue. According to our information, Henry Onyekuru , followed by Arsenal and West Ham in particular, will engage for five seasons with Everton, the English club of Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas . In the wake, the fast forward 20-year-old is loaned to the Sporting Anderlecht for a season. Henry has completely revealed this season with Eupen, scoring 22 goals.

The amount of the transfer is estimated at about 8 million euros, requested by the German-speaking club. The deal was facilitated by good relations between Toffees' management and Mogi Bayat, who was given " an exclusive mandate to negotiate on behalf of KAS Eupen ". The influential agent is also in excellent terms with the Anderlecht Sporting.

Will get champions league experience too. Good move. Compared to Dembele who would have cost probably 5 times as much playing in an inferior league, this really makes sense.

All the exceptional Belgian players were once in that pub standard league. This lad is clearly a few levels above the likes of Henen, judging by the competition for his signature and the fact that the Belgian champions want him for their first team, even if it's just for one season on loan.

Plus the only youtube video anyone had of Henen when he signed was a slow motion 40 yard pass across the pitch. As opposed to top scorer with 22 in a top flight league at 19. No guarantees of how good he will be but it's definitely a better starting point.

Do the Belgian clubs (and Anderlecht in particular) have 6-8m on players?
From the looks of things their record signing has been 7.5m. That was Stanciu last year and is the only time they have gone above 5.5m.

Could this be us getting them a star of their league they would not normally be able to afford for a season to sweeten the deal?


Certainly can't do any harm to establish these kind of relationships with a club who have a history of producing talented players.
