Official | Everton re-sign Idrissa Gana Gueye from PSG

As confirmed by the English club, Everton have re-signed Senegal international midfielder Idrissa Gueye from PSG. The 32-year-old has penned a two-year deal on Merseyside, that’s despite late attempts from Arsenal and Chelsea to hijack the deal as well as interest from Sporting Lisbon and Porto in recent days. Everton and PSG had been struggling to agree on a fee for the player.

Gueye said the following about his return to the Premier League to EvertonTV:

“There is no better feeling than coming back home. I am very happy to be here at Everton again, to help and to work hard. I’ll give my soul to this team.”

“Coming back here was important to me because I feel like I’m in my home. I’ve followed the team every week and watched how they play. For me, there is no better place than Everton, so that’s why I chose to come back here.”

“There is also a great atmosphere at the stadium and everyone here is like a family. I felt very, very good when I was here [the first time] and even when I went to Paris, I kept in touch with some of the players here and continued to support the team.

“For me, it’s special. I told PSG if I am going to leave it will be for one team — and that was Everton.”

“It was not a difficult decision for me because I love this club. That’s why I had to come home. It’s a pleasure for me to be back and hopefully we will have a good season because we have to go and try to achieve our goals.”
