Speaking on RMC Sport show Le Vestiaire tonight, French international and Everton full-back Djibril Sidibé appeared to confirm that he is set to join the Toffees permanently after his initial loan spell from AS Monaco comes to an end this summer.
“I have had a discussion with the Monaco board, they know my position, I know theirs. My aim is to play matches at a high intensity, which is what I have discovered in the Premier League. Concerning Everton, I have my position, I also know the coach’s position (Carlo Ancelotti). I can’t say, but on my side everything is green lit. The coach likes me, he has faith in me. Then there are things that will count that I do not have control over, Monaco’s position, Everton’s position. My aim is to play the maximum number of games until the end of the season, EURO 2020 is coming. (Everton) really want to invest to reach the European places and that is something that is well on its way and that interests me, it is what I want, we will see what the future has in store.”
