James Garner has left Manchester United to join Everton on a permanent basis. Garner has signed a four year contract at Goodison Park.
Both teams have not disclosed the transfer fee involved in the transfer. However, sources report the fee to be around £9 million with add-ons amounting to £15 million.
Garner came through the youth ranks of Manchester United. He has managed to make 7 appearances for the club as well. Including a couple league appearances.
However it is at the loan spells with Watford and Nottingham Forest he made a mark. He made 20 and 61 Championship appearances for those clubs respectively.
The Toffees announced, ‘James Garner has signed for Everton from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee, the midfielder penning a four-year deal until the end of June 2026.
‘The exciting 21-year-old talent is the Blues’ eighth summer signing after the arrivals of defenders James Tarkowski, Rúben Vinagre and Conor Coady, midfielders Amadou Onana and Idrissa Gana Gueye and forwards Dwight McNeil and Neal Maupay.’
“I’m made up to sign for Everton. It’s a huge step in my career and I want to help the team get better while progressing as a player,” Garner told evertontv. “I think Everton is the perfect place to do that, I can’t wait to get started.
“I feel like I can bring real energy to the team. It is something that Everton definitely demands and I can add that in abundance. I have got quality as well so hopefully I can be a big part of us having a good season.”
