Everton have signed winger Demarai Gray from Bayer Leverkusen, with the 25-year-old agreeing a three-year contract and an option for a fourth.

A former Leicester City player, Gray made 133 Premier League appearances for the Foxes, scoring 10 goals, providing nine assists and winning the title in 2015/16.

After moving to German club Leverkusen in January this year, he made 10 appearances in the Bundesliga and scored once before making his return to English football with Everton.

“I’m delighted to be back in the Premier League at such a big club and I’m excited to play with the team and get to work,” Gray told Everton's official website.

“The manager [Rafael Benitez], with his ambition and what he has won in the past, is important and we’ll look to push forward and compete with the top clubs."
