gone by June mate

he won't sign a contact extension and I'd be amazed if Everton keep him to run down his contract after the way we got burned by Moyes doing that

Running the contract down wasn't the problem.

It was not expecting him to leave that was the issue.

He was training with the reserves last season.

Now he's with the first team.

That's a lot different to be fair.

The fact that he didn't name him in the EL squad, when he put Coleman and Connolly in, suggests that saying he's with the first team either a) a way of showing how poor it was not to get a striker and / or b) just thinking he might as well be around in case of an injury crisis and / or c) keeping his value up for Jan.

Well, it's more than just "he is in the squad"/"he has a squad number".

I feel like people havent' seen koemans interview where he specifically states niasse is now in his thinking and that you have to give people chances.
Because that was a pretty significant statement in regard to this discussion.

Yes but logic would suggest that he's still behind everyone that he put in the EL squad.

Which wouldn't be a ringing endorsement. If there'd been some sort of epiphany then he'd have picked him as an option for that too, I'd have thought.

Id guess it's just to differentiate between  last season when he was solely with the u23 squad.
