Everton Sign 20 million Ben Godfrey
Everton FC have completed the signing of under 21 England international, Ben Godfrey, from Norwich for £20 million.
He is the fifth major signing for Italian boss Carlo Ancelotti after the arrival of James Rodriguez, Niels Nkounkou, Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure.
Carlo Ancelotti has been in the market for a centre back and saw the loan signing of Fikayo Tomori from chelsea as a good option. However signing Fik appeared increasingly unlikely and the attention switched to Ben Godfrey.
Ben Godfrey made 30 top flight appearances for Norwich last season and impressed greatly although they ended up being relegated.
It is an honour to sign for Everton and to be part of a huge club. I am very thankful for the opportunity and I can’t wait to get started.
The aim for me at Everton is to win trophies and win games. I like to win. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I care and I am a passionate lad.
The 22 year old continued…
The fans can guarantee they will get 110 per cent out of me when I am on the pitch.
This is a club full of history that has an exciting team full of world-class players who will help me kick on to the next level. I am looking forward to working with them and, hopefully, having great times with Everton Football Club.Ben Godfrey
