Idrissa Gueye has joined French champions, Paris Saint-Germain from Premier League side Everton after spending three years with them.

The Senegalese completed a move to the French giants on Tuesday for a few reported to be £29m.

Reports of a possible transfer for the 29-year-old to Ligue 1 first surfaced in January when the Paris club first showed interest but the midfielder stayed back at Merseyside after Everton rejected a £21m bid.

Gueye would go on to finish the season with the Toffees and also helped his country to a second-place finish at the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations.

"I can't wait to see the Parc on matchday and witness that passion. It's hard to explain, but I desperately want to experience it. It hasn't fully sunk in yet, but ever since I was a little kid I've dreamed of one day playing for a club like Paris Saint-Germain... the prospect of playing at the Parc is a dream come true..." the player said during his presentation.

Everton on their part have signed Fabian Delph from Manchester City and are looking to bring in Southampton's Mario Lemina as a direct replacement for Gueye.
