Idrissa Gana Gueye joined Everton on a four-year deal in August 2016.
The Senegal international completed a move from Aston Villa, having spent one season with the Midlands club after forging a reputation as one of the finest young midfield players in France.
Gana made 134 appearances for Ligue 1 side Lille, having emerged from the Diambars Academy in Senegal which was founded by Patrick Vieira and other footballers of African heritage.
He made his breakthrough for Lille in 2010, contributed to their Ligue 1 title success in 2011 and established himself as a regular starter over the following four seasons, during which the French side competed in two Champions League campaigns.
His move to England in July 2015 brought 38 appearances for Villa and, despite his side’s relegation, only Leicester’s Premier League-winning midfielder, N’Golo Kante, made more interceptions and tackles combined across Europe’s top five leagues.
On arrival at Goodison Park, Gana had been capped on 32 occasions by Senegal. He also represented his country at the 2012 Olympic Games and the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
