Everton complete their 3rd transfer of the January transfer window with Mangala coming in as another defensive option.
A loan deal between Manchester City and Everton has been agreed for Mangala, who is to join the toffees until the end of the season.
Manchester City made the signing on Tuesday of Aymeric Laporte, their most expensive defender to date. This deal has freed up the option for Mangala to find a new club on a non-permanent basis, with Everton now agreeing to the loan move.
The left sided centre back, who has also played left back, will be a good chance for the Toffees to strengthen their defence.Everton are expected to pay 100% of Mangala’s wages until the end of his loan deal and a loan fee has been agreed between the two clubs.
