Everton have completed the signing of Demarai Gray from Bayer Leverkusen for an undisclosed fee.
Gray has returned to the Premier League, signing a three-year contract with Everton until the summer of 2024 with the option for a fourth year. The winger becomes the third summer signing of the Toffees following the arrival of Andros Townsend and goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.
For me, the targets that I’ve set myself and what the club’s ambitions are, collectively everything felt right to me to join Everton.
"I want to push on, be a pivotal player in the squad, and help the team score goals and assist goals. I’m a speedy, tricky winger. I enjoy running with the ball, roaming around the pitch," the winger told the club's official website.
"I like to play anywhere along the front three and I feel like I can be dangerous in all areas. And with the ability I know I have and the belief I have in myself, I think I can add to this team."
"I feel like I’m at a stage in my career now where I can put everything together. There are areas of my game where I still want to improve and become better at. I’m excited to kick on."
