Everton midfielder Amadou Onana has spoken after the closure of the summer transfer window.

The Daily Mail reported earlier this summer that the Toffees may be forced to sell their 22-year-old prized asset this summer, but the Belgian stayed put at Goodison Park despite rumours linking him away.

Onana joined the club in a £33m move last summer and has quickly become a star player and an instant hit amongst the Toffees’ supporters despite the club narrowly escaping relegation from the Premier League on the final day.

Belgian international Onana has played 90 minutes in all five of Everton’s league and cup fixtures so far this campaign – joining up with the Red Devils for their upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers against Azerbaijan and Estonia.

Amadou Onana on Everton future

The 22-year-old has joined up with his fellow Belgian internationals, speaking to the media in a press conference this afternoon.

“Having stayed at Everton? It’s not a missed opportunity at all. Football is above all a question of timing. You have to know how to seize opportunities when they arise.

“I’ve changed clubs every summer transfer window for the last few seasons, but sometimes you have to know how to slow down and be patient. Now I’m fully focused on my task with Everton.

“I’m very happy to be at Everton and I’m completely focused on the task I have to do there.”

Onana has excelled since his move to Goodison Park, with fans hoping the 22-year-old can continue to be a crucial part of their squad for the foreseeable future.
