EVERTON have completed the £10million signing of Fabian Delph from Manchester City.
The England international midfielder, who can also play left-back, has penned a three-year deal with the Toffees.
“The Everton fans seem to know football, seem to understand it, it seems to be in their blood and they really back the team.
“You are always going to hear Evertonians and I’m excited to play at home and hear them when I am playing.
“I’m really happy to be here, I’m going to give absolutely everything – nothing less than 100 per cent.
“Hopefully we can push together, fans and players, to do something special.”
Everton boss Silva added: “When I look to bring a new player into our squad, the first thing I look for above all the other things is quality and Fabian is a player with high quality.
“But what they can bring to our dressing room is also important and if you can put those two things together then that can only be good for the club.”
Delph was part of Gareth Southgate’s squad that reached the World Cup semi-final a year ago and featured in this summer’s Uefa Nations League.
He featured 20 times in all competitions as City secured a domestic treble.
He began his career at Leeds and went on to spend six years at Aston Villa before leaving for the Etihad in 2015.
