Having held firm over John Stones all summer, Everton have gone and added to their defensive stable on deadline day with the signing of Argentinian defender Ramiro Funes Mori from River Plate.

The once-capped, 24-year-old centre-back joins on a five-year deal for a fee of £9.5million…

For those already sizing up their replica jersey, Funes Mori will wear the No.25 shirt at Goodison.

He also becomes only the second ever Argentinian to play for Everton, following in the footsteps of the inimitable Denis Stracqualursi.
