Everton: Demarai Gray

Everton have signed Demarai gray from Bayer Leverkusen on a three-year deal for £1.7m. Gray will undergo a medical in Florida where Everton are currently having their pre-season camp. The toffees have the option to extend his contract by one year if they wish to do so. Everton met the release clause in the Bayer Leverkusen contract of Gray.

“I’m delighted to be back in the Premier League at such a big club and I’m excited to play with the team and get to work.” Demarai Gray said after joining Everton. “Speaking to the manager and [director of football] Marcel Brands, I had a really good feel for the club and I feel this is a place where I can continue to develop.”

“I want to push on, be a pivotal player in the squad, help the team score goals and assist goals,” he added. ”I feel like I’m at a period in my career now where I can put everything together and achieve the targets I have set for myself. With the ability I know I have and the belief in myself, I can help this team.”

Gray joined Leverkusen in January last year after spending five years at Leicester. He was part of the title-winning team in 2016. Gray is set to join the rest of the Everton squad in Orlando. He is Everton’s third signing this summer after they secured the services of free agents, Asmir Begovic and Andros Townsend.
