Marco Silva has made his second Everton signing with the capture of left-back Lucas Digne from Barcelona.

The 25-year-old has committed to a five-year deal with the Toffees and follows Richarlison, who made a reported £50m move from Silva's former club Watford last month.

Digne has an impressive CV having begun his career at Lille before moving on to Paris St Germain, Roma and then Barcelona, for whom he made 46 appearances in two seasons.

The Frenchman said: "Everton is a big club with a great history. I want to play games, win games and excite the fans with the quality of our football.

"I played good football in Rome, and I played well too in Barcelona. I progressed a lot as a player and as a person by playing with the best players in the world.

"I want to show my best football here and discover the best league in the world. Everybody loves the Premier League. I am loving the fact I am coming here.

"The club has brought in a lot of players and we are building to bring some success in the Premier League. We will work together as a team to try to make this happen. That is what is important and I could not be more excited about this challenge."
