Aston Villa is snagging another former Blue!

I’m really excited. Everton is a big club, I cannot wait to get started. I want to show my quality to my teammates, to the Club and, of course, the fans. I want to put a smile on their faces. I’m ready and willing to work hard for it and for all of us to work together,” says new signing El Ghazi. [EFC]
