League One side Burton Albion have signed former Everton and Senegal striker Oumar Niasse as a free agent.

The 31-year-old scored nine goals in 42 appearances during five years with the Toffees and also played in the Premier League on loan with Hull and Cardiff.

Niasse, who cost Everton £13.5m from Lokomotiv Moscow, left Huddersfield in June without making an appearance.

"He's shown us he can add something to the squad," Burton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink told the club website.external-link

"He's been training with us for a short period and has shown a lot of hunger and desire to get back playing.

"We know he's made over 50 Premier League appearances - hopefully he'll be a good help for us to finish the season strongly."

The Brewers, 12th in League One and 10 points off the play-offs, have not disclosed the length of Niasse's deal.
