DONE DEAL: Everton Agree Deal to Sign Costa Rican Winger Bryan Oviedo

Fee agreed fro Costa Rican.
Everton can confirm a fee has been agreed with FC Copenhagen for the transfer of Bryan Oviedo.

The versatile Costa Rica-born star is now en route to Merseyside to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms over a switch to the Blues.

Oviedo has been a regular starter for the Danish giants, operating at both left-back and on the left side of midfield.

Before moving to Denmark Oviedo, 22, played for Deportivo Saprissa in his homeland. His move to Europe followed an impressive showing for Costa Rica’s Under-19s a they finished fourth in the 2009 Under-20 World Cup.

He has 13 senior caps for the South American nation and won two Danish Leagues and one Danish Cup, the latter while on loan at FC Nordsjaelland.

Everton boss David Moyes is known for his masterstrokes in the transfer market and he may well have pulled off another coup by landing relative unknown Bryan Oviedo.

The Costa Rican can play on the left-side of defence or midfield and will fill the hole left by Royston Drenthe, who spent the second half of last season on loan from Real Madrid.

Although Everton have been forced to sell their star players in recent seasons, like Jack Rodwell and Joleon Lescott, Moyes has always got a good price and invested the returns wisely.

The Scot’s philosophy at Goodison Park has always been evolution rather than revolution and he is slowly but surely assembling a squad at Everton that can challenge at the top end of the Premier League.

Moyes’ business is in stark contrast to that of compatriot Kenny Dalglish, who was sacked by the Toffees’ Merseyside neighbours Liverpool this May.

Dalglish spent massive money last summer but nearly all his expensive signings have proved collosal flops. The likes of Andy Carroll, Charlie Adam, Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing are all unfancied by new Reds’ boss Brendan Rodgers, while Everton’s Nikicia Jelavic, Marouane Fellaini, Leighton Baines, Phil Jagiela (all signed for reasonable fees) are the envy of the Premier League.
