Everton have wrapped up the loan signing of Aston Villa winger, Anwar El Ghazi. 

The 26-year old will spend the rest of the season at Goodison Park after Everton balked at Villa's £15million (€18m) asking price for a permanent deal.

El Ghazi's move comes on the same day that Lucas Digne moved in the other direction for a slightly more pricey, £23million (€27m).

He's Rafa Benitez's third signing of the January window, following the arrivals of defenders Vitaliy Mykolenko and Nathan Patterson.

“I’m really excited. Everton is a big club, I cannot wait to get started,” El Ghazi told evertontv.

“I want to show my quality to my teammates, to the Club and, of course, the fans. I want to put a smile on their faces.

“I’m ready and willing to work hard for it and for all of us to work together.

“I’ve met a few fans already and it’s great to see how people live for the Club. It’s basically their religion. You just want to give it your all and show them what you can do to make them happy.

“I just want to focus on working hard, getting into the team, fighting for my place and, with the boys, to get Everton where it belongs - that is much higher up the table. We have a really good squad.

“I can always score a goal in an important moment. I can add a lot of value with my pace and technique going forward. I can hold the ball and I am decent in one-on-ones. I am ready and can’t wait.

“If I can score goals like the one I scored against Everton, for Everton now, then I will be a happy man.”

El Ghazi could make his Everton debut in Saturday's Premier League game away to Norwich.
