Everton sign forward Ndiaye on five-year deal

Everton has signed Senegal forward Iliman Ndiaye from Marseille on a five-year contract, with the transfer
fee reported to be around £15 million. Ndiaye, 24, joined Marseille from Sheffield United last summer and
scored four goals in 46 appearances, playing a key role in helping the French club reach the Europa League
semi-finals.

Everton manager Sean Dyche expressed his optimism about Ndiaye’s addition to the squad, stating, “He is
still young but has experience at European and international level and we feel he will be a really positive
addition to our squad.”

Sheffield United had “reluctantly accepted” a reported £20 million offer for Ndiaye after he recorded 14
goals and 11 assists, contributing significantly to their promotion from the Championship in the 2022-23
season. Ndiaye’s journey in football saw him move from non-league side Boreham Wood to Sheffield United in 2019, with his early career including time at the Marseille academy before moving to Senegal, his father’s birthplace.

Ndiaye is Everton’s third summer signing, following the return of winger Jack Harrison on a season-long loan from Leeds and the permanent acquisition of central midfielder Tim Iroegbunam from Aston Villa.

Expressing his excitement about joining Everton, Ndiaye said, “The main reasons I wanted to join were how big the club is, its history, and the part I can play in helping the team in the forward direction it is going in. I’m so excited. I’ll be very proud to be part of the last season to play at Goodison Park, too.”

Everton’s director of football, Kevin Thelwell, added, “Iliman is a player we have admired for a long time and we are delighted to bring a much sought-after player of his quality to Everton. We think he will excite Evertonians and give our attack a different dimension.”

Ndiaye has made 20 international appearances for Senegal, further highlighting his experience and potential impact at Everton.
