After Everton concluded their business in the transfer window yesterday, they submitted their final squad list for the Premier League 2016-17 season earlier today.

The one surprise on it is Oumar Niasse, who declined a loan move to any one of three Russian clubs yesterday. Niasse had not been handed a squad number at the beginning of the season, with the expectation that he would be on his way out of the club. Looks like Koeman will have to give him a number now.

Here is the full list of 25 players -

  1. Leighton Baines
  2. Ross Barkley
  3. Gareth Barry
  4. Yannick Bolasie
  5. Tyias Browning
  6. Tom Cleverley
  7. Darron Gibson
  8. Phil Jagielka
  9. Aaron Lennon
  10. Romelu Lukaku
  11. James McCarthy
  12. Matthew Pennington
  13. Ashley Williams
  14. Muhamed Besic
  15. Seamus Coleman
  16. Gerard Deulofeu
  17. Ramiro Funes Mori
  18. Idrissa Gueye
  19. Arouna Kone
  20. Kevin Mirallas
  21. Oumar Baye Niasse
  22. Bryan Oviedo
  23. Joel Robles
  24. Maarten Stekelenburg
  25. Enner Valencia

From the Everton site -

Premier League regulations dictate that a club’s squad can be up to a maximum of 25 players of whom a maximum of 17 may not be home-grown players. A reduced squad can be submitted if a club does not have eight falling into the home-grown category.

A home-grown player is one who, irrespective of his nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three Seasons or 36 months prior to his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21).

In addition to the 25-man named squad, clubs can use an unlimited number of players aged 21 or under.

An Under-21 player means a player under the age of 21 as at the 1st January in the year in which the season concerned commences. Under-21 players can be added to the squad during the season.

These rules cover Premier League games only.
