Former Manchester United winger, Ashley Young has joined Everton on a year contract after departing Aston Villa as a free agent.
Young, who played at Old Trafford for the Red Devils for nine years, adds valuable experience to Sean Dyche’s squad as a winner of the Premier League, Serie A, Europa League, FA Cup, and League Cup.
Everton finished 17th – one spot above the relegation zone – last season and Young has vowed to help the team do better this upcoming campaign.
“I know things haven’t gone too well for Everton in the past couple of seasons but the manager’s ambition, speaking to him and hearing what he wants to do to change the club around, was a key factor in my decision,” Young told Everton.tv.
The former England and Watford player has made 422 Premier League appearances and ranks 15th in the competition’s all-time assists with 71.
