Henry Onyekuru's tenure as an Everton player is over, as the attacking midfielder joined AS Monaco on Monday.

Monaco announced that the Nigerian international signed a five-year contract.

Although neither side revealed a fee, Joe Bernstein of the Daily Mail reports that Everton agreed to sell the 22-year-old for £12 million.

"We are very happy to have Henry Onyekuru with us," Monaco general manager Oleg Petrov said. "He has demonstrated his qualities in recent seasons. He is a fast and powerful offensive player who will strengthen our offensive sector. We welcome him."

Onyekuru joined Everton from K.A.S. Eupen in 2017 but never appeared in a match; the Toffees immediately loaned him to Anderlecht, then Galatasaray for the following season.

He scored 16 times in 44 appearances to help the Turkish side win the Super Lig.
