Everton have completed their third signing off the summer transfer window, inking winger Demarai Gray to a three-year deal with an option for a fourth.

The 25-year-old flew straight to Orlando where the Everton side landed yesterday for their preseason involvement in the Florida Cup where he was unveiled today. He will wear the #11 shirt for the Blues.

Gray previously wore the #28 at Bayer Leverkusen, and had the #7 shirt at Leicester City since he joined the first team squad.

Speaking in his first interview, Gray highlighted the key reasons why the Blues signed him -

“I want to push on, be a pivotal player in the squad, and help the team score goals and assist goals.

“I’m a speedy, tricky winger. I enjoy running with the ball, roaming around the pitch.

“I like to play anywhere along the front three and I feel like I can be dangerous in all areas. And with the ability I know I have and the belief I have in myself, I think I can add to this team.”

The #11 shirt at Everton was last worn by loan forward Josh King and Theo Walcott before him. Kevin Mirallas prominently wore the #11 for five years before him.
