Everton have completed the signing of Fabian Delph from Manchester City this evening for a fee of £8.5m which could rise to £10m if certain aspects of the deal come to fruition.
Delph becomes the third signing of the summer for Marco Silva and is likely to play some part of the pre-season game against AS Monaco on Friday afternoon.
A left sided player, Delph provides a wealth of experience and essential cover for Lucas Digne and Leighton Baines.
Delph said, “Ultimately, the goal is to win something. I’ve not come here just to be here – I’ve come here with ambitions to win things.”
Silva is delighted to have captured the signing of such an experienced player, and told the Liverpool Echo, “When I look to bring a new player into our squad, the first thing I look for above all the other things is quality and Fabian is a player with high quality.
“But what they can bring to our dressing room is also important and if you can put those two things together then that can only be good for the club.
“Fabian is a player that can give us different solutions in our midfield because he can play in more than one position and that is important for us.”
