DONE DEAL: Everton Sign Gueye
Senegalese international Iddrisa Gueye has signed a 4-year deal plus option for another year with Premier League side Everton AFS sources can confirm.
West Ham United tried to hijack the move at the last hour, but Iddrisa insisted on joining Everton from Aston Villa after the Toffees activated his release clause.
He made an impressive 37 appearances for Villa last term after his £9m switch from Lille, but was unable to prevent them being relegated from the Premier League.
Gueye becomes Everton’s second signing of the summer, following the capture of Maarten Stekelenburg. The Merseyside club are looking to a better season after replacing Roberto Martinez with Ronald Koeman.
