Cape Town - Everton striker Oumar Niasse has revealed he is feeling more settled at the club after a difficult start to life at Goodison Park.

The Senegal international signed for the Toffees in February 2016 from Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow, but was sent out on loan to Hull City in the latter half of last season.

Niasse, who has three goals in three appearances across all competitions for Ronald Koeman's men this term, praised the support he has received at the club since joining.

"It's not difficult when you arrive at Everton, it's much more difficult when I left to go to Russia and Turkey," the 27-year-old told the Liverpool Echo.

"At Everton when you arrive you can feel before you've even been on this kind of project, you arrive and there are always people to help you settle and asking you about everything you need.

"I remember when I arrived Aaron Lennon was always every day asking 'If there's anything you need, call me'. In the future, anything could happen to you and you always think this club can help you.

"I think the most important thing is to be ready and I have been every time. The first three or four months here were difficult but after that, I've kept my mind and I've tried to settle and I think I'm settling very, very well now."
