Everton defensive midfielder Idrissa Gueye is on the verge of signing a new contract with the Premier League club, according to The Telegraph.

The Senegal international has been on the books of Everton since the summer of 2016 when he joined from Aston Villa for a transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £7.1 million.

According to Transfermarkt.co.uk, the former Lille star’s current contract with the Toffees runs until June 2020.

Gueye is a very good defensive midfielder who has established himself as key player in the current Everton.

While there is still some time to run on Gueye’s current contract, it makes sense for the Toffees to hand him a new deal.
