Official: Barca's Fourth Departure Confirmed

Continuing with their clearout, LaLiga champions FC Barcelona have announced their fourth departure of the window.
 
 
French defender Lucas Digne was allowed to leave the club's pre-season tour to finalise a move to Everton, and has now been announced as a new signing by the Toffees. He joins the Premier League side in a deal worth about €20 million (R310 million) and put pen to paper on a five-year deal.
 
"Everton is a big club with a great history. I want to play games, win games and excite the fans with the quality of our football," Digne told evertontv.

"I played good football in Rome and I played well, too, in Barcelona. I progressed a lot as a player and as a person by playing with the best players in the world.

"When you play with the best players, it helps you build your character and, of course, it helps on the training ground and during games, too, because you want to give the best of you.

"I want to show my best football here and discover the best league in the world. Everybody loves the Premier League. I am loving the fact I am coming here.

"I am not afraid, I am excited. For me, it is a new challenge to discover a country, a league, people and a great club such as Everton. It is fabulous."
 
 
Digne has become the fourth player to leave Barca in this window, following the exits of Andres Iniesta, Gerard Deulofeu and Paulinho.
