Everton boss Marco Silva bolstered his squad last night with the signing of Manchester City utility man Fabian Delph.
Delph leaves the Premier League champions in search of more frequent first-team football. The England international managed just 20 appearances last season as City won the domestic treble.
The ex-Aston Villa player has 20 England caps to his name and is a versatile performer. He is naturally a central midfielder but has filled in at left-back for City.
Everton have already signed goalkeeper Jonas Lossl from Huddersfield and Andre Gomes from Barcelona this summer.
Delph’s experience will complement a young Everton squad and the signing could prove to be a coup for the Toffees.
Following the arrival of the serial trophy winner, Everton’s supporters have taken to Twitter to speak of their delight.
Several fans of the club are delighted that a player boasting a vast amount of Premier League experience has chosen to sign for them ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.
Here is a selection of what Everton fans are saying following the arrival of Delph at Goodison Park:
Important signing this that only small minded people wont understand.
