Gareth Barry reveals delight at completing Everton switch
Gareth Barry admits his delight at completing his permanent transfer to Everton on a three-year deal
Gareth Barry has expressed his delight after completing his permanent move to Everton on a three-year deal.
The 33-year-old midfielder spent last season on loan to the Toffees and helped Roberto Martinez’s men finish fifth in the Premier League.
There is a fantastic history here and it was brilliant working with the manager
And the ex-Manchester City man, who scored three goals and made four assists in 32 Premier League games last term, is thrilled to have completed his switch to Goodison Park.
“I was really keen to get this sorted before the lads come back to training on Thursday. I’m delighted now that everything is signed and that I’m going to be spending the next few years at Everton,” Barry told evertontv.
“When you are on loan, it is never the same as being a signed player. I was really settled last year – but now I am an official Everton player and it feels really good.
“From the moment I signed last year I settled in straight away. There is a fantastic history here and it was brilliant working with the manager.”
