Everton have confirmed the signing of Andros Townsend on a two-year deal.
The winger, 30, joins the Toffees on a free transfer after his Crystal Palace contract expired.
“I think everyone knows what Everton is. It’s a massive football club, it’s very ambitious, a club which has been trying to get back to where it belongs into Europe and beyond,” Townsend told evertontv. “I’ll be doing all I can to help the Club do that.
“Everton is a massive football club and has big ambitions next season. As the old cliché goes, it was a no-brainer.
“Rafa [Benitez] is very experienced. He does a lot of work on the tactical side on the training pitch, he leaves no stone unturned. But more importantly, he’s a great man, a great man-manager, and he’s always talking to you. I’m sure he will be very successful here.”
