Everton have completed the signing of Jean-Philippe Gbamin from Mainz.

The 23-year-old defensive midfielder has agreed a five-year deal after joining for an undisclosed fee.

"It's a big moment with a lot of emotion and now it's on me to prove on the pitch why they bought me," Gbamin told the club's official website.

"I'm excited because Everton is a great club here in England with a big history and ambition so I didn't think for more than a moment - I wanted to come here."

The Ivory Coast international is Everton's fourth summer signing.

He could make his Premier League debut when the Toffees start their campaign at Crystal Palace on Saturday 10 August.
