It’s looking like the Henen move to Lille has fallen through, with no reason why given.
No deal for David Henen (20) from Everton. Deal with LOSC Lille has collapsed. Belgian attacker stays at England till the summer.— Sven Claes (@svenclaes) January 31, 2017
David Henen is closing in on a deadline day move to French club Lille, according to Belgian journalist Sven Claes.
Claes says the 20-year-old is expected to sign a four-year deal at the Ligue 1 side, ending a two-and-a-half year spell with the Toffees.
Henen moved to Goodison Park, initially on loan, in the summer of 2014. In a rather curious transfer Henen moved from Anderlecht to Olympiakos before immediately being loaned out to Everton.
The Belgian forward then signed a permanent £200,000 deal the following summer, though he has struggled to get anywhere near the first-team.
Henen was sent out on loan to Fleetwood last season, scoring once in 15 appearances.
He has been restricted to U23 games since and was always a likely candidate to leave the club before the deadline as Ronald Koeman continues to trim his squad.
