Everton left-back Lucas Digne has signed a new contract at Everton.
After weeks of rumours and manager Carlo Ancelotti speaking about in press conferences the French international has finally put pen to paper keeping him at the club until 2025.
Digne 27, joined Everton in 2018 from Spanish giants Barcelona and hasn’t looked back arguably being Everton’s most best and most important player since he signed.
This season Digne hasn’t had the best of luck with injuries having suffered ankle ligament damage but he has still played 21 games in all competitions getting six assists in that time.
Ancelotti has used him further forward at times to great effect this campaign with The Toffees looking like a different side when he’s in the starting 11.
The full-back is just three appearances away from his 100th outing at Everton and he will be looking to build on that as well as his five goals and 19 assists for the club.
He told Everton’s website: “The fans made me feel at home from the beginning, they showed me big love and created a song for me.
“We have a big project with the Club and can reach something very good at the end of this season and for the next few years.
“I want to play in Europe and Everton is the best place to do that.
“I have seen the progress every year since joining the Club, we are building a strong team.
“When you sign for Everton, it is like an amazing wedding.
“You just have to do your best every day to show Evertonians the love you have for them”
Digne, who has ten winners medals from his time at Barcelona and PSG, has certainly won the heart of all Everton supporters having been one of the best left-backs in the league since joining.
Bur he won’t stop there as he said: “I play in the best league and I want to play in the best cup in Europe, for sure.
“And I want to do that with Everton.”
Evertonians would love nothing more to get in the Champions League this season but at the moment they will be buzzing to see their star man staying at the club for at least the next four years.
