Idrissa Gueye revealed he only wanted to return to Everton this summer and revealed: I feel like I’m in my home.
The midfielder has officially re-signed for the Toffees three years after leaving for PSG for £30 million.
Gueye made 108 appearances for Everton between 2016-2019.
And during his spell at PSG, he helped them claim two Ligue 1 titles and reach the Champions League final.
Now Gueye is back at Goodison Park and has signed a two-year deal.
But Gueye wasn’t interested in joining either.
What’s been said
He told the Blues’ official website: “There is no better feeling than coming back home. I am very happy to be here at Everton again, to help and to work hard. I’ll give my soul to this team.
“Coming back here was important to me because I feel like I’m in my home. I’ve followed the team every week and watched how they play. For me, there is no better place than Everton, so that’s why I chose to come back here.
“There is also a great atmosphere at the stadium and everyone here is like a family. I felt very, very good when I was here [the first time] and even when I went to Paris, I kept in touch with some of the players here and continued to support the team.
“For me, it’s special. I told PSG if I am going to leave it will be for one team — and that was Everton.
“It was not a difficult decision for me because I love this club. That’s why I had to come home. It’s a pleasure for me to be back and hopefully we will have a good season because we have to go and try to achieve our goals.”
