Everton new boy fires shots at Liverpool after rejecting Reds

Digne reveals Liverpool double transfer snub

Digne reveals Liverpool double transfer snub

He joins the Goodison Park club from Barcelona for a reported £18 million.

"My tattoo is not about football", the defender explained, before really hitting back.

Digne, a France worldwide, won a host of trophies with Barca, and Paris Saint-Germain before that, but was not central to either side and has made no secret of his desire to be first choice at Goodison Park.

And in a move which has already endeared him to the blue half of Merseyside, Digne also revealed that he has twice rejected the chance to join Liverpool.

Digne will have big boots to fill with Marco Silva entrusting him to replace fan favourite Leighton Baines at left-back this season.

State authorities responded by saying California's water supply was not "diverted" anywhere. More than 14,000 firefighters are fighting various fires across the north west of the US.

"If in every position you have very good players it's hard for the coach". I said to him to come but we'll see.

If Mina doesn't arrive at Everton - it won't be for a lack of effort on Digne's part. I want to play games, win games and excite the fans with the quality of our football. I progressed a lot as a player and as a person by playing with the best players in the world.

Whilst those two new team-mates will likely link-up with the new signing next season, it's another that the 25-year-old will have to displace.

Bernard would have been the ideal addition for Tottenham, especially considering the fact that he was available on a free transfer, and missing out on him to Everton will be a real bitter pill to swallow for Pochettino.

Silva said Digne is a "high-quality player, aggressive, with good technical ability. he is accustomed to winning".
