Tom Cleverley has agreed to join Everton on a five-year deal.tomCleveley

The 25 year-old will move to Goodison Park on a free transfer when his current contract with Manchester United expires on July 1st.

Cleverley spent last season on loan at Aston Villa and played in last week’s FA Cup Final defeat to Arsenal.

The midfielder also has 13 England caps to his name.

The move to Merseyside will see Cleverley reunited with Toffees manager Roberto Martinez, after the pair worked together at Wigan Athletic.

Martinez told Sky Sports: “We are extremely delighted to be welcoming Tom to Everton and I can think of many reasons as to why our fans will enjoy Tom representing our football club.

“The most important one is that he is a perfect fit for what we are trying to build here as he has so much experience of playing in the Premier League and he still has his best years just ahead of him.

“At the age of 25 and a player who is representing his country, Tom has experienced winning trophies and having big roles in demanding teams. Having worked with him previously, I know the type of character he is and I know that, with the Everton fans’ support, we will get a very special footballer joining our already exciting team.

“It says a lot also, when someone like Tom is available on a free transfer and he can pick his next club out of many options home and abroad, that he has chosen to play for our football club. That’s the perfect start to his career here at Everton.”
