Everton has completed the signing of right-back Nathan Patterson from Rangers in a deal worth £16m. He has signed a five and a half year contract with the club and becomes their second signing after Vitaily Mykolenko from Dynamo Kyiv. Rangers had rejected two bids during the summer citing that their valuation was not met.
“I’m over the moon to sign for Everton and looking forward to getting started,” Everton signing Nathan Patterson said. “It was an easy choice to sign. This is a massive club with huge history and the fanbase is tremendous. Obviously, we aren’t in the place where we want to be right now but we can definitely get there with the talent in the changing room and staff here, and I have full belief we can do that.”
“It is really exciting to come to a club that has huge talent in the team. I am going to work my socks off and hopefully, I can do well with them in training and in games,” he added. “It was also great for me knowing the manager really wanted me here and that made my decision. When a club really wants you, it makes your mind up early on. I wanted to come here from the very start. I’m delighted to be here and really looking forward to playing in front of the fans at Goodison. Long-term, I want to nail down a starting position and win some trophies to make the fans proud.”
