Defender Ramiro Funes Mori has left Everton to join LaLiga side Villarreal after three years at Goodison Park.

The 27-year-old has completed a move for an undisclosed fee, having made 67 appearances for the Toffees across three seasons.

However, having suffered a serious knee injury when on international duty with Argentina in March 2017, he featured in just four games last season.

Funes Mori, who has signed a four-year deal with Villarreal, was included in Argentina’s preliminary World Cup squad but failed to make the final 23-man group Jorge Sampaoli has taken to Russia.

Funes Mori was brought to Goodison Park from River Plate and was a regular for Everton in his first two terms with the club.

He scored five times in total – though all of those came in his opening campaign – and he was also sent off in a Merseyside derby in April 2016 which Liverpool won 4-0.
