Sources: Everton set to bin senior forward who's been offered to Leeds
Everton are set to bin striker Oumar Niasse when his contract expires next month, Football Insider understands.
The Senegal international, 30, is not expected to figure for Carlo Ancelotti’s side again after been virtually frozen out this season.
An Everton source has told Football Insider that the club have no plans to offer Niasse an extension to his four-and-half year deal signed in January 2016.
The forward was offered to Championship clubs in January, including promotion favourites Leeds United, but was unwilling to drop down a division.
He has spent the entire season at Goodison park after previous loan spells at Hull City and Cardiff City, although they were both in the Premier League at the time.
Director of football Marcel Brands revealed at the Everton annual general meeting in January that he was trying to find a new club for Niasse.

He was unable to do so, and the Senegalese subsequently made two substitute appearances in the Premier League under Carlo Ancelotti.
Yet, Niasse has had just 19 minutes of senior action this season and has scored just nine Everton goals since signing from Lokomotiv Moscow in January 2016 for £16million.
Niasse,was revealed he had been banished to train with Everton Under-23s and, under Ronald Koeman, claimed he did not even have a locker at the training ground.
His Everton career is now expected to end with 42 matches that have yielded nine goals.
