Everton Sign Winger Dwight McNeil From Burnley for £20m

Burnley winger, Dwight McNeil has joined Frank lampard’s EVerton side on a 5-year contract in a deal worth about £20 million.

During his time with Burnley, McNeil made 140 appearances for the Clarets and has missed just two Premier League games since December 2018.

The former England Under-21 international is Everton’s third summer signing after the arrival of his former Burnley team-mate James Tarkowski and Ruben Vinagre on loan from Sporting.

“It is an amazing feeling to sign,” said McNeil, 22.

“When I heard about Everton’s interest I wanted to get it done straight away because of the club and how good the team is.

“I feel playing under a manager like Frank Lampard, he will help me to get my stats up – and that is what I want to do and improve my game.

“I am a direct runner with the ball. I like to get on the ball, cut inside and create chances for the team.”

McNeil placed second in the Premier League for the most successful dribbles (90) last season and third in the list for the most crosses (199).
