Aston Villa sign French left-back Lucas Digne from Everton

Aston Villa signed French left-back Lucas Digne from Everton on Thursday, the English Premier League club said.

The 28-year-old became Aston Villa's second signing in the winter transfer window.

"To sign a player of his pedigree and quality in the January window is a great addition to our squad and his arrival excites me and everyone associated with Aston Villa," said manager Steven Gerrard said. "When Lucas became available, we jumped at the opportunity to bring him to the club."

Digne joined Everton in 2018, and appeared in 127 games for the Toffees, scoring six goals and producing 20 assists.

He has also represented Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Roma, and Barcelona. He won league titles in France and Spain and played for the French national team in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and EURO 2020.
