Everton will complete the signing of Barcelona defender Lucas Digne in the next 24 hours, according to sources.

 

The France international left-back is in  the United States for Barcelona’s pre-season tour. But he didn’t play in their penalty shootout win over Tottenham. The La Liga champions confirmed that he is returning to Spain in order to finalise a transfer. It is likely that they agreed a deal on Sunday night.

Barcelona tweeted: “Lucas Digne travels today [Sunday] to Barcelona with the club’s permission to finalise his departure from the club.”

On Sunday evening Digne paid tribute to the Catalan club on social media ahead of his expected departure. He wrote on Instagram: “I want to say thank you very much to all. First to the club that has given me everything since I arrived. “Thanks to all the physios, the staff with whom I have worked, the physical trainers, the security people, all that make the club a family.”

Digne has made 46 appearances since joining Barcelona from Paris Saint-Germain in July 2016. But he fell out of favour under coach Ernesto Valverde last season and missed out on a place in France’s World Cup squad.

Digne will become Marco Silva’s second signing since taking charge of Everton. He captured Richarlison from former club Watford last week for a fee believed to be around £40m.
