Transfer News: Everton midfielder seals loan exit to LOSC Lille

About Football Express UK

Everton have officially announced that Andre Gomes will move to Ligue 1 outfit LOSC Lille on a loan this summer.

The Toffees have let the former Barcelona man leave on a loan for the remainder of this season to the French League. Moreover, the player was keen on making a move away from Goodison Park this summer to gain more minutes.

The 29-year-old has made 100 outings for the Toffees during his stint with the club at Goodison Park until now. Gomes will hope to regain his form in the Ligue 1 outfit and come back stronger next year with Everton.

Everton midfielder out on loan

Frank Lampard has had a dismal start to the Premier League campaign with nothing clicking for the club just yet. The gaffer has made attempts to sign players who could possibly make a difference but hasn’t paid off so far.

At this phase, Everton are fighting relegation and will look to escape it just like the club did last season. Lampard has engineered a move for Gomes as the midfielder was not matching the system of the club this season.

However, it is understood that a loan move will help the player regain his form and come back to help the Toffees. Upon his move to Lille, Gomes said-

“I am very happy to join LOSC and its ambitious project. I hope to help the group, which already has a lot of quality, by bringing my experience to it.

The President and Paulo Fonseca convinced me to join the project. I hope to be part of this quality team as soon as possible, so that we can have a great season together.

 Go LOSC!”

Undoubtedly, the midfielder will hope to get regular minutes and don the Everton outfit once again next season.
