Everton And West Ham United Secure Crucial Signings Ahead of New Season


Everton Football Club have completed the signing of Iliman Ndiaye from Olympique Marseille, bolstering their attacking options for the upcoming season.

The Senegalese striker has agreed to a five-year contract with the Toffees, with the deal worth an initial €18.5 million plus €1.5 million in add-ons according to reliable transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Meanwhile, Romano further revealed that Ndiaye is currently undergoing medical tests on Merseyside and will be unveiled as an Everton player in the coming days.

The 24-year-old’s versatility and goalscoring ability make him an exciting addition to Sean Dyche’s squad.

Everton had reportedly been pursuing Ndiaye since his impressive stint at Sheffield United, where he scored 14 goals and provided ten assists in 46 Championship games.

Meanwhile, the Toffees beat off competition from other Premier League clubs to secure Ndiaye’s signature.

Ndiaye’s move to Goodison Park is a significant coup for Everton, who have already signed Tim Iroegbunam from Aston Villa and Jack Harrison on a season-long loan from Leeds United this summer.

The Senegalese forward will be eager to recapture his goalscoring form in the Premier League, having struggled to make an impact at Marseille last season.

With Ndiaye’s addition, Everton’s attack looks more potent ahead of the new season.

The Toffees will be hoping that Ndiaye can form a deadly partnership with Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has been the subject of interest from Newcastle United.

What’s next for Everton latest signing?

The 24-year-old will be unveiled as Everton’s latest signing after the completion of his medicals.

He’s likely to be tested when Everton commences their club friendly matches starting with Salford City on July 27.

Everton and West Ham United make crucial signings

Elsewhere, West Ham United have secured the signature of Sheffield United goalkeeper Wes Foderingham on a two-year contract.

The 33-year-old shot-stopper will make the switch to the London Stadium on 1 July after his contract with the Blades expires.

Foderingham, who made 30 appearances for Sheffield last season as they suffered relegation from the Premier League, will bring a wealth of experience to the Hammers.

The goalkeeper has spent four seasons at Bramall Lane and has previously had permanent spells with Rangers, Swindon Town, Crystal Palace, and Fulham.

However, West Ham United finished in 9th place in the Premier League table last season with 52 points.

Meanwhile, West Ham fans will be hoping that he can provide strong competition in the goalkeeping department and help the team push for success in the upcoming season under new manager Julen Lopetegui.

Wes Foderingham expressed his delight upon joining West Ham United

The goalkeeper expressed his excitement about the move, stating, “I’ve been fortunate to play for teams with a real strong fanbase, a fanbase that’s passionate about their club – and West Ham are no different.”

“The club has gone from strength to strength and I think I’m joining at a very, very good time. It’s a positive time for the club.”

“It feels brilliant to be a Hammer!”

The 33-year-old England shot-stopper won the Premier League Save of the Month in December 2023 and will hope to amass more achievements at West Ham United.

What’s next for Wes Foderingham and West Ham United?

The Hammers are likely to feature their new goalkeeper Wes Foderingham in their club friendlies starting with Dag & Red on the 20th of July.
