Everton announce the signing of Arouna Kone from Wigan Athletic on a three-year contract.

Everton have won the race to sign Wigan Athletic striker Arouna Kone on a three-year deal.

The Merseyside outfit have announced the capture of Kone, who was also said to be a target for Newcastle United following Wigan's fall into the Championship after clinching the FA Cup in May.

Despite the Magpies' interest, it was expected that Kone would reunite with his former manager Roberto Martinez, who took the reins at Goodison Park following the departure of David Moyes to Manchester United.

Kone, who has moved to Everton for an undisclosed fee, netted 13 goals for Wigan last season.
