Idrissa Gueye: Senegal Midfielder Completes Move From Everton to Paris Saint-Germain
Paris Saint-Germain have completed the signing of Idrissa Gueye from Everton for an undisclosed fee.
The 29-year-old joined Everton from Aston Villa for around £7m in 2016 and played 108 times for the Toffees.
His move to Paris, though, will give him the chance to play in the Champions League and he insists he’s excited to be joining the PSG project.
“I’m immensely proud to sign for Paris Saint-Germain,” he told the Parisian club’s official website.
“After focussing on the AFCON with Senegal, I wanted to give a new boost to my club career by joining Paris Saint-Germain, one of the most structured and ambitious sports projects in Europe.
“I’d like to thank the directors, the coach and his staff for the confidence they have shown in me. I will do everything to justify the faith they have shown in me and to integrate into this talented squad.
“And of course I can’t wait to take in the amazing atmosphere of the Parc des Princes, which impressed me during my first seasons in France!”
Gueye’s exit from Goodison Park follows the sale of winger Ademola Lookman to RB Leipzig. Everton have signed midfielders Andre Gomes and Fabian Delph, and goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.
