Everton announce the signing of goalkeeper Joel Robles from Atletico Madrid.

Everton have announced the signing of former Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Joel Robles from Atletico Madrid.

The 23-year-old arrives for an undisclosed fee and has signed a five-year contract at Goodison Park, where he links up with former boss Roberto Martinez.

Martinez brought Robles to Wigan on loan last season, where he made 13 appearances and played in their FA Cup final triumph over Manchester City.

Robles is the third ex-Latics player to join Everton this week following the £5m signing of striker Arouna Kone and the capture of Paraguayan defender Antonin Alcaraz on a free transfer.

The Spaniard will compete with long-serving shot-stopper Tim Howard for a Toffees starting berth.
