France international completes move to Goodison Park after agreeing a five-year deal

Everton have strengthened their defence with the signing of left-back Lucas Digne from Barcelona.

The 25-year-old France international signed a five-year contract to join the Merseyside club for an undisclosed fee.

"I want to show my best football here and discover the best league in the world," he told the club's official website.

"Everton is a big club with a great history. I want to play games, win games and excite the fans with the quality of our football."

Digne came through the Lille youth academy before moving to Paris Saint-Germain in 2013.

He spent three seasons in the French capital, helping PSG win back-to-back Ligue 1 titles, two French League Cups and a French Cup.

A loan spell in Serie A with Roma followed before Digne secured a move to Barcelona in 2016.

Digne, who made 29 LaLiga appearances for Barcelona, is Everton's second signing of the summer after Richarlison.

The Blues begin their Premier League campaign at Wolverhampton Wanderers on 11 August.
