Everton to sign Barca's Digne

By Daily Sports on July 30, 2018

Everton will complete the signing of Barcelona defender Lucas Digne in the next 24 hours, according to Sky sources.

The France international left-back has been with the Barcelona squad for their pre-season tour of the United States and was an unused substitute in their

penalty shootout win over Tottenham .

The La Liga champions have confirmed he is returning to Spain in order to finalise a transfer and Sky Sports News understands a deal was agreed on Sunday night.

They tweeted: "Lucas Digne travels today [Sunday] to Barcelona with the club's permission to finalise his departure from the club."

On Sunday evening Digne paid tribute to the Catalan club on social media ahead of his expected departure.

He wrote on Instagram: "I want to say thank you very much to all. First to the club that has given me everything since I arrived.

"Thanks to all the physios, the staff with whom I have worked, the physical trainers, the security people, all that make the club a family."

Digne has made 46 appearances since joining Barcelona from Paris Saint-Germain in July 2016 but he fell out of favour under coach Ernesto Valverde last season and missed out on a place in France's World Cup squad. (BBC)
