Everton have confirmed that they have re-signed Idrissa Gana Gueye from Paris Saint-Germain. The 32-year-old has reportedly penned a two-year deal at Goodison Park. 

The Senegal international first joined the Toffees in 2016 from Aston Villa and made 108 appearances across all competitions, netting four goals.

He was a fan favourite at the Merseyside club and regularly featured in the team. 

The midfielder joined PSG in 2019 in a deal worth around £29 million. However, after winning two Ligue 1 titles, he has now returned to the Blues for around £8m (as per Sky Sports). 

It was previously reported that the Toffees had hit an impasse in negotiations but they have now completed a move for the former Lille star. 

Gueye is Everton’s seventh signing of the summer following the arrivals of James Tarkowski, Conor Coady, Ruben Vinagre, Amadou Onana, Dwight McNeil and Neal Maupay. 

The Toffees are also reportedly very close to signing Manchester United ace James Garner

Gueye was deemed surplus to requirements at the Parc des Princes after PSG signed Renato Sanches, Vitinha and Fabian Ruiz in this transfer window. 

He is highly rated for his tackling and passing as well as interception and pressing skills.  

However, fans shouldn’t expect much from the Senegalese footballer as his best years are probably behind him.
