Everton sign defender Cuco Martina after expiry of Southampton contract

DEAL DONE! Everton complete free signing of Cuco Martina following release from Southampton

Everton have signed defender Cuco Martina on a three-year deal.

Right-back Martina, who had been released by Southampton, joins fellow new recruits Jordan Pickford, Wayne Rooney, Davy Klaassen, Sandro Ramirez and Michael Keane at Goodison Park, while Henry Onyekuru also joined before being loaned to Anderlecht for the coming year.

The Curacao global has signed a three-year contract with Everton.

"I brought the player to Southampton, so I know what he can do for us here and this is why I've now brought him to Everton".

Koeman is expected to deploy Martina in Seamus Coleman's absence as the full-back continues his recovery from a season-ending leg break in March.

Martina's versatility attracted Koeman to the Curacao global, who made nine Premier League appearances for Southampton last season, as Everton attempt to balance European commitments with their efforts to break into the Premier League's top six.

"Everton supporters are really passionate about their club and everyone is excited about where the club is aiming". He also captains the Curacao national team and just completed playing at the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

"Cuco Martina is an experienced player who can perform in different positions at the back, which is important", said the Everton manager.

Confirmation of this deal was made official via the club's website this afternoon and the defender becomes the latest signing of what has been a busy summer in terms of incomings for the Merseyside outfit thus far.

"I brought the player to Southampton, so I know what he can do for us here and this is why I've now brought him to Everton".

"When you come to a new club, you need to get to know one another so the training camp in Holland will be great for me and for the other new players as well".
