Everton have signed Lacina Traore on loan from AS Monaco.

The Ivory Coast international has joined the Toffees for the remainder of the season after only arriving at Monaco from Anzhi Makhachkala earlier this month.

Traore, who obtained a work permit on Tuesday, will require a visa to play in the UK but Everton are confident of that being sorted in the coming days.
