Lots of Everton fans have been left to laud an update from Paul Joyce on Lucas Digne.
As per a tweet from The Times journalist, the former FC Barcelona ace has signed a new deal at the Goodison Park faithful that will keep him at the Merseyside club until 2025, something the club have since confirmed.
Is Digne the best left-back in the Premier League?
This is a great piece of news for Carlo Ancelotti’s team given just how important Digne is to the side.
The France international has made no fewer than six assists in 16 games in total in the Premier League so far in the 2020/21 season and has also averaged 2.4 clearances, 2.1 tackles, 1.5 key passes and 1.1 interceptions a match (Sofascore).
It is certainly a big boost for the Toffees to have him on board for the longer term.

“Best left back in the weeeeeerrrrrlllllldddd, up the Toffees.”
“Brilliant, but not surprising. All world class players want to play at a world class club.”
