Anderlecht sporting director Herman Van Holsbeeck has revealed he considers Everton striker Henry Onyekuru his best signing of the summer.
Everton won the race to snap up the Nigerian from Belgian side Eupen, but then looked to send him out on a season-long loan deal.
Anderlecht agreed a deal and Onyekuru is currently in the middle of a loan campaign at the Belgian giants, which has already seen him impress.
He has netted nine times in 18 Belgian top flight league games for Anderlecht, despite being played on the left flank, and Van Holsbeeck is delighted with the bit of business he did to sign the Nigerian, who he says would now be at Antwerp if he had not acted.
"He is my best transfer of the summer", Van Holsbeeck told Belgian daily La Derniere Heure.
"If he had not come to us, he would now be playing for Antwerp, due to [sporting director] Luciano D'Onofrio and his contacts."
There has been speculation Everton could look to take Onyekuru to Goodison Park in the January transfer window, which opens in a matter of weeks, but there is nothing in the agreement with Anderlecht which would allow the Toffees to do so.http://www.insidefutbol.com/2017/12/17/my-best-bit-of-business-anderlecht-sporting-director-thrilled-with-everton-loanee/360210/
