Toffees complete Oviedo deal
Everton have completed the signing of Bryan Oviedo from FC Copenhagen on a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee.
The Costa Rican was granted a work permit following a successful hearing in London on Friday afternoon.
The 22-year-old has been a regular starter for FCK after joining from Deportivo Saprissa in his homeland.
He can operate at left-back and on the left side of midfield and is widely expected to be a welcome addition to David Moyes’ squad.
Oviedo, who has been the target of several Premier League clubs, has opted for a move to Goodison Park.
The player becomes the Toffees’ fourth signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Steven Pienaar, Steven Naismith and Kevin Mirallas.
