LONDON: Everton have signed England international midfielder Fabian Delph on a three-year deal from Premier League champions Manchester City, the club said on Monday.

The 29-year-old, who has made 20 appearances for England, became surplus to requirements after City recently signed Spanish midfielder Rodri from Atletico Madrid.

Delph had one year left on his City contract and played 22 times in 2017-18 season. He featured in only 20 matches in all competitions last season as the club won a domestic treble.

No financial details were disclosed but media reports said the fee was worth up to 10 million pounds.

“The club that I’ve been at has had success, especially in the last two seasons, and over the last four years we managed to win trophies,” he told the Everton website. “I wanted to be playing more regularly. The opportunity to play for Everton was too good of an opportunity to turn down."
