Everton have confirmed the signing of Ashley Young on a free transfer.

Young joins Sean Dyche’s side boasting a wealth of experience after 21 seasons with Watford, Aston Villa, Manchester United and Inter Milan.

The former England international, 38, has signed a one-year deal at Goodison Park to become the club’s first signing of the summer transfer window.

Young admitted that reuniting with his former Watford teammate Sean Dyche was a key factor in the decision to move to the Blues after leaving Villa.

He said: “I know things haven’t gone too well for Everton in the past couple of seasons

“But the manager’s ambition, speaking to him and hearing what he wants to do to change the club around, was a key factor in my decision.

“The other is the size of Everton. It’s a massive club and the fanbase is one of the best. Having them behind me is a fantastic opportunity.

“I’m delighted to get the opportunity to be here and I just want to get started now.”
