Transfers DONE DEAL: Everton sign Tim Iroegbunam from Aston Villa

Tim Iroegbunam has signed for Everton from Aston Villa for an undisclosed fee, the 20-year-old central midfielder agreeing a three-year deal until the end of June 2027.

The exciting England youth international becomes the Blues’ first summer signing and will link-up with his new teammates when Sean Dyche’s side report back to Finch Farm for the start of pre-season next month.

An athletic and combative player, Iroegbunam has represented the Three Lions at Under-20 level, having been part of the side that won the UEFA Under-19s European Championships in 2022.

After enjoying a stand-out campaign on loan with Championship outfit QPR in 2022/23 – where he made 32 league appearances and scored two goals – Birmingham-born Iroegbunam returned to Aston Villa last season as Unai Emery’s side secured a fourth-placed finish.

He also made his first outings in European competition in 2023/24, featuring in both legs of Villa’s last 16 Europa Conference League win over Ajax, as well as being involved against Lille and Olympiacos in later stages as the Midlanders reached the semi-finals of the competition.
