Everton have announced the signing of midfielder Idrissa Gueye from Aston Villa on a long term deal, according to SkySports.
The reports revealed earlier today that the Liverpool based club have completed the signing of center-back Idrissa Gueye on a four year deal.
The Toffees paid £7.1million for the 26-year-old defender.

Everton new manager Ronald Koeman has made him the second signing of the summer, first was Maarten Stekelenburg from Fulham.

He further admired the new boss and is keen to start working under him. He will be joining the training camp in the next few days.
