Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon has joined Everton on loan until the end of the season.
Lennon used to be a star of the Spurs team under Harry Redknapp and his successor Andre Villas-Boas, but he has started just three Barclays Premier League matches under current boss Mauricio Pochettino.
And Everton have now given the 27-year-old a chance to revive his career on Merseyside.
A tweet from the Toffees read: “Everton have signed Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon on loan until the end of the season. Welcome, Aaron! #EFC”
Lennon brings 10 years’ experience of top-flight football with him to Goodison Park.
The winger has played 267 times for Spurs since he moved from Leeds to north London for just £1million.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez hopes the midfielder, who won the last of his 21 England caps two years ago, will inject some life into his side, who are 12th in the Premier League.
“We all know what Aaron will bring to our squad with his experience and know-how, his involvement with England in two World Cups and the landmarks he has set in the Premier League,” Martinez told Everton’s website.
“At 27, Aaron will be a really important asset to our squad and he will represent a real boost in terms of attacking options from now to the end of the season. His pace and trickery will fit in well at Goodison.”
