Gbamin shirt number revealed

Blues’ new midfielder has decided his number

Everton earlier today completed the signing of Ivory Coast international midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin on a five-year-deal to replace Idrissa Gueye.

The midfielder will wear the #25 shirt for the Toffees, keeping the same number he wore in the Bundesliga last season for Mainz 05.

The number has been previously worn by the following players during the Premier League era at Everton -

Ramiro Funes Mori (15/16 - 17/18), Aaron Lennon (14/15), Marouane Fellaini (08/09 - 13/14), Nigel Martyn (03/04 - 05/06), Espen Baardsen (02/03), Paul Pettinger (01/02), Peter Degn (00/01), Daniel Williamson (99/00), Michael Ball (96/97 - 97/98)

Speaking to evertontv after his signing about why he picked the #25, the midfielder said -

“It has been my number since I started to play professionally.

“My birthday is on the 25th [September 1995] and my sister was also born on the 25th.

“I have worn 25 at all my clubs and I am happy I have kept this number at Everton.”
