Dele Alli Joins Everton For £10 Million From Tottenham.
Dele Alli, an England player, has signed a £10 million ($13 million) deal with Everton, joining new Everton manager Frank Lampard at Goodison Park.
The 25-year-old struggled for form at Tottenham but has a fresh start in Merseyside.
“Everton have completed the signing of midfielder Dele Alli from Tottenham Hotspur on a two-and-a-half-year contract until the end of June 2024,” Everton confirmed on the club’s official website on Tuesday morning, February 1.
“The England international, who played 269 times and scored 67 goals for Spurs after joining in February 2015, is new Everton manager Frank Lampard’s first permanent addition – following a loan move for Donny van de Beek from Manchester United on the final day of the January transfer window.”
Alli added: “I’m delighted to have signed for Everton, a huge club with a great fanbase and history.
“I’m eager to get started and can’t wait for my first game in an Everton shirt.
“I’m looking forward to helping the team and the opportunity to work with the new manager Frank Lampard.”
Alli’s move from north London to the North West will be initially free, with the Toffees paying £10 million after he makes 20 appearances.
He has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract that will keep him in the league until the summer of 2024.
