Everton complete the signing of 6ft 8ins striker Lacina Traore

Everton have completed the signing of Monaco forward Lacina Traore on loan until the end of the season.

The Ivory Coast international obtained a work permit earlier in the week but the deal was held up after the French club's main striker Radamel Falcao was ruled out for several months with a knee injury.

Manager Roberto Martinez remained confident the move would still go through and the Toffees, in a statement, have now confirmed the 6ft 8in striker has joined them.
