Everton has confirmed the signing of Conor Coady from Wolves until the end of the season. Coady was linked to West Ham as well and brings his seven-year stay at the club to an end. He hopes to earn a spot in the England squad for the 2022 World Cup. On Saturday, Coady was dropped for the first time since April 2017.
“It’s incredible to join Everton. As soon as I heard the interest, from the manager but also the football club itself, I really wanted to be part of it straight away. I’m over the moon to join,” Conor Coady said after joining Everton. “I’ve grown up around the city, I know the football club, how big this club is, and what it means to the supporters. I’m someone who was desperate to come here, to play for this club. I’ve got family and friends who are massive Evertonians. I’m here to give absolutely everything I’ve got for this football club. It’s important I work as hard as I can to help my teammates, help the club move forward, and make people proud.”
“We are delighted to bring a player of Conor’s quality and vast experience to Everton, and he fits into how we want to play as a team,” Everton manager Frank Lampard said. “As well as being one of the Premier League’s most reliable defenders and an England international, his leadership skills will be of huge benefit to us, too.”
“Ben Godfrey underwent successful surgery this morning on the fractured fibula he sustained during Saturday’s Premier League opener against Chelsea at Goodison Park,” Everton said in a statement. “The defender will now begin rehabilitation at Finch Farm under the care of the Club’s medical team and is expected to be out for around three months.”
