Saha signs for Toffees, but Obinna move fails
Everton have confirmed the signing of French striker Louis Saha from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee.
Saha has signed a two-year deal with an option for a third year after passing a medical over the weekend.
The Toffees have also revealed a move for Inter Milan winger Victor Obinna has fallen through after an unsuccessful work permit application.
Saha, whose spell at Old Trafford was beset by injuries, has 18 international caps and scored 42 goals during his United spell.
The 30-year-old will not be joined at Goodison Park by 21-year-old Inter Milan winger Obinna, however.
The Toffees' application for a work permit for the Nigeria international was rejected by the Home Office despite manager David Moyes and chairman Bill Kenwright travelling to an appeal hearing in London today.
Everton had agreed a season-long loan move for the winger.

'I have known of Everton's interest for the last couple of weeks and there have been a few sleepless nights hoping it would go through,' he told the club's website, evertonfc.com.
'Finally it has and I am over the moon.'
