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.
