Everton Sign Idrissa Gana Gueye

The 32-year-old returns to Everton after a three year absence

Everton have completed the transfer of Idrissa Gana Gueye for an undisclosed fee on a two-year-deal.

The 32-year-old joined Everton from Aston Villa for around £7m in 2016 and made 108 appearances before departing in a £30m move to the Parc des Princes in 2019. The energetic midfielder featured 111 times for PSG, winning two league titles and enjoyed two Coupe de France triumphs.

Gana told evertontv: “There is no better feeling than coming back home. I am very happy to be here at Everton again, to help and to work hard. I’ll give my soul to this team. 

“Coming back here was important to me because I feel like I’m in my home. I’ve followed the team every week and watched how they play. For me, there is no better place than Everton, so that’s why I chose to come back here.

“There is also a great atmosphere at the stadium and everyone here is like a family. I felt very, very good when I was here [the first time] and even when I went to Paris, I kept in touch with some of the players here and continued to support the team. 

“For me, it’s special. I told PSG if I am going to leave it will be for one team — and that was Everton. 

“It was not a difficult decision for me because I love this club. That’s why I had to come home. It’s a pleasure for me to be back and hopefully we will have a good season because we have to go and try to achieve our goals.”
