Everton have signed Monaco right-back Djibril Sidibe on a season-long loan deal with the option to make the deal permanent for the French global.

Sidibe comes from AS Monaco where he endured mixed fortunes at club level, with his form dipping towards the end of last season after winning the World Cup last summer with France.

"It was very easy for me".

Prior to joining Monaco in July 2016, Sidibe spent four years at Lille after starting his career at hometown club Troyes. I did not have to reflect for too long before making my decision to come here.

This has included Mouse Kean, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin, with Everton looking capable of taking the fight to the Premier League's top six in 2019-20.

Rory Burns did enjoy success, scoring his maiden Test ton, while Joe Root made 57 and 28 after moving up the order to No. 3. Despite failing with the bat, Ali's performance with the bowl was not that bad.

"Djibril has also shown to me he has a real desire to play for Everton and be part of the big things we are trying to create".

The defender parlayed that success into a spot with France's World Cup squad as Les Bleus won the tournament in Russian Federation, playing all 90 minutes against Denmark in his lone appearance.

The Toffees were in the market for a right-back to provide competition to Seamus Coleman and the Merseyside outfit have added an exciting new player to Marco Silva's ranks.

After getting yet another key addition through door, especially one that will bolster the squad's quest for European football, Blues boss Silva said: "Djibril has fantastic experience, winning titles and playing many matches in a competitive league".

Everton start their domestic campaign with a trip to face Crystal Palace on Saturday.
