Everton close in on free transfer for Andros Townsend; 30-year-old has left Crystal Palace upon the expiry of his deal in June and could reunite with Rafa Benitez after their time at Newcastle in 2016

Andros Townsend has signed a two-year contract with Everton.

The 30-year-old winger moves to Goodison Park on a free transfer after his contract expired with Crystal Palace.

Townsend reunites with manager Rafa Benitez, who he played under at Newcastle, and told the club’s website: “I think everyone knows what Everton is. It’s a massive football club, it’s very ambitious, a club which has been trying to get back to where it belongs into Europe and beyond.

Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has joined Everton on an initial 12-month contract with an option for a further year.

So Everton have signed Begovic and Andros Townsend today.  Two really poor players, imo, and both now a very long way past being Premier League quality.  Everton are on a bit of a downward spiral, I'd say.

Manchester City have completed the signing of backup goalkeeper Scott Carson on a free transfer. 

The 35-year-old has spent the last two seasons on loan at City from Derby, but with his contract with the Championship side having now expired, he has penned a one-year deal at the Etihad.

Never-ending reports that Spurs have a deal to send Lamela and ~€25mm to Sevilla and get Brian Gil in return. If so, Lamela's sh*t-housery will be sorely missed :D But his Rabonna last season was a gem! The problem is that he only scored 17 goals in 8 years, missing thru injury as many games as he played.

A deal for the 23-year-old Norway centre-back has largely been agreed with only the final details to be concluded.

Kristoffer Ajer has completed his move to Brentford from Celtic for £13.5m.

Ajer, who is highly rated and also was target for fellow Premier League newcomers Norwich, was not in Celtic's squad for their first pre-season friendly at the weekend.

Leeds have signed Chelsea midfielder Lewis Bate for an undisclosed fee. 

Bate, who Leeds say attracted interest from a number of clubs, has signed a three-year-deal at Elland Road, running until the summer of 2024.

The 18-year-old has been part of the Chelsea youth set up for the last 10 years and captained them in the 2020 FA Youth Cup final, but never made a senior appearance for the club.

Newcastle defender Florian Lejeune has completed a permanent move to Alaves for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old, who had one year left on his current deal at St James' Park, spent last year on loan at the Spanish side.

Lejeune was signed by Rafa Benitez five years ago, but fell out of favour under Steve Bruce.

Am I reading this correctly? So he's been in the Chelsea organization since he was 8 years old? Did he go to school? How does this work over there?

Speaking of Everton, UAE club Sharjah FC have announced the signing of their winger, Bernard, on a two-year contract.

The Brazilian made just five starts in his 18 appearances last season and was close to leaving Goodison Park in the January window but a move to Al Nasr fell through.

Harry Wilson is undergoing a medical with Fulham ahead of a £12m move from Liverpool.  

The Wales winger, who impressed at Euro 2020, is poised to leave Anfield permanently after a string of loan moves. 

The academy graduate has been unable to force his way into Jurgen Klopp’s plans despite spells at Bournemouth in the Premier League and Cardiff last season.

He has generated £5m in loan fees for Liverpool over the past few seasons from loan stays at Crewe, Hull, Derby, Bournemouth and Cardiff. 

Selling him for such a sizeable fee is seen as kudos for the LFC academy, its director Alex Inglethorpe and staff.
