Idrissa Gueye has completed his move from Everton to Paris St Germain, the clubs have announced.

The 29-year-old Senegal midfielder joins the French champions, who had bids for him rejected in January, for an undisclosed fee on a four-year deal.

Gueye told PSG’s official website: “I’m immensely proud to sign for Paris St Germain.

“After focusing on the AFCON (this summer’s Africa Cup of Nations) with Senegal, I wanted to give a new boost to my club career by joining Paris St Germain, one of the most structured and ambitious sports projects in Europe.

“I’d like to thank the directors, the coach and his staff for the confidence they have shown in me. I will do everything to justify the faith they have shown in me and to integrate into this talented squad.

“And of course I can’t wait to take in the amazing atmosphere of the Parc des Princes, which impressed me during my first seasons in France!”

Gueye played for Lille before joining Aston Villa in the summer of 2016 and then moving on to Everton a year later, making 108 appearances for the Toffees in all competitions, scoring four goals.

In a message on his social media accounts, Gueye said: “To The Blues, Thank YOU! Since my arrival I have felt at home at this club, you have welcomed me and my family with open arms.

“Everton FC gave me the opportunity to continue in the Premier League and the last three years I have had some amazing experiences which I will cherish forever. I am grateful to have had the love and support of you all throughout this journey and I must say no matter the weather or performances the support was always there.

“As you know I am about to start a new journey, a journey that I have dreamed about since a kid and when this opportunity presented itself I couldn’t turn it down.

“To my teammates and coaches I will miss you and will continue to support you. Everton … we are family and will continue to be and for me Merseyside will always be BLUE #COYB.”
