Everton announce Lucas Digne deal: Left-back reveals Marco Silva conversation sparked move | Football | Sport

The France international, 25, has put pen to paper on a five-year contract at Goodison Park and is set to take Leighton Baines’ place in the Toffees first-team.

Digne believes he has moved to the “best league in the world” in joining Everton following a two-year spell at Barcelona.

“Everton is a big club with a great history. I want to play games, win games and excite the fans with the quality of our football,” Digne told EvertonTV.

“I played good football in Rome and I played well, too, in Barcelona. I progressed a lot as a player and as a person by playing with the best players in the world.

“When you play with the best players it helps you build your character and, of course, it helps on the training ground and during games, too, because you want to give the best of you.

“I want to show my best football here and discover the best league in the world. Everybody loves the Premier League. I am loving the fact I am coming here.

“I am not afraid, I am excited. For me, it is a new challenge to discover a country, a league, people and a great club such as Everton. It is fabulous.”
