Everton have sold defender Ramiro Funes Mori to Spanish side Villarreal for an undisclosed fee.

Argentina international Funes Mori arrived at Goodison Park in September 2015, with Roberto Martinez – who was Everton manager at the time – splashing out a reported £10million to sign him from River Plate.

A regular starter in his first season, Funes Mori slipped down the pecking order under Ronald Koeman before a knee problem restricted him to just four appearances in the 2017-18 campaign.

The 27-year-old, who missed out on Jorge Sampaoli’s World Cup squad, has now signed for Villarreal, penning a four-year deal with the LaLiga club.

Funes Mori made a total of 67 appearances for Everton across all competitions, scoring five goals.
