PSG have confirmed the signing of Idrissa Gueye from Everton on a four-year contract for a reported fee of £28m
The 29-year-old becomes the eighth Senegalese player to turn out for the Parc des Princes side.
Gueye spent four successful years in England, having started his professional career in Europe with Lille, where he played 176 times. From there, he moved to Aston Villa and then Everton.
His move to Paris, though, is the biggest of his career.
“I’m immensely proud to sign for Paris Saint-Germain,” he told the Parisian club’s official website.
“After focussing on the AFCON with Senegal, I wanted to give a new boost to my club career by joining Paris Saint-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!”
