Lucas Digne has signed a new contract that will keep him at Everton until June 2025.

The left-back was previously with other high-profile clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain and AS Roma.

He arrived from Barcelona in 2018 for an estimated £18 million.

Digne has so far appeared 97 times, scoring five goals and 19 assists.

The French international has made 34 appearances for his country since his debut in 2014 and was part of the team who were runners-up to Portugal in the previous European Championships which was also held by his native country.

The left-back has also announced the motivation behind his extended stay was the Blues‘ big ambition.

With a number of trophies already won with PSG and Barcelona the 27-year-old is convinced Everton boast the manager, talent and infrastructure to add to his already impressive trophy haul.
