Aston Villa complete £25m Digne transfer from Everton after Chelsea decided against move

The Frenchman has joined Steven Gerrard’s ranks at Villa Park after falling out with Toffees head coach Rafael Benitez

 

Aston Villa have completed a £25 million ($34m) deal to sign Lucas Digne from Everton.

Digne spent three-and-a-half years on Everton’s books after signing from Barcelona in the summer of 2018, featuring in 127 games across all competitions for the Merseyside outfit.

The 28-year-old had been a key player in the squad until a public fallout with head coach Rafael Benitez in December 2021, with Chelsea, who were also initially keen on the Frenchman, deciding against making an official bid.
