Lucas Digne completed his move to Aston Villa from Premier League rivals Everton on Thursday. The left-back joins in a deal rising to 25 million pounds (34.4 million dollars) after falling out with Toffees boss Rafael Benitez. The French international becomes Villa’s second January signing after Philippe Coutinho’s loan arrival from Barcelona. Villa boss Steven Gerrard told the club’s official site: “When Lucas became available we jumped at the opportunity to bring him to the club. “To sign a player of his pedigree and quality in the January window is a great addition to our squad and his arrival excites me and everyone associated with Aston Villa.” Digne, who moved to Goodison Park from Barcelona in August 2018, said in a post on Instagram on Wednesday evening he has “loved to be a part of the Everton family.” (DPA)
