Ben Godfrey signs for Everton from Norwich

1 min read

Godfrey is the fifth major summer signing at Everton, following the arrivals of James Rodriguez, Allan, Abdoulaye Doucoure and Niels Nkounkou

Everton have completed the signing of defender Ben Godfrey from Norwich for a fee of £20m.

Carlo Ancelotti has been in the market for a centre-back and switched attentions to the 22-year-old after a loan deal for first-choice target – Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori – became increasingly unlikely to happen.

Godfrey made 30 top-flight appearances for Norwich as Daniel Farke’s side were relegated to the Sky Bet Championship last season, but impressed nonetheless along with Max Aarons and Jamal Lewis in defence for the Canaries.
