One of the most surprising things that happened during the summer transfer window was that Manchester United decided to sell James Garner to Everton on a permanent basis. Not only that but he wasn’t sold for a crazy amount of money. The Toffees will pay United £9 million fixed for the transfer plus £6.5 m in add-ons.

Garner once was one of the most promising young academy players in Manchester United, where he has spent almost all his life. He arrived at the academy when he was only 8 years old and started progressing through all the ranks until making his debut with the senior team in February of 2019 when he was only 17 years old.

During his unveiling as Everton’s newest signing, he said that he was excited to start a new chapter in his career as this will be his first Premier League season: “I’m made up to sign for Everton. It’s a huge step in my career and I want to help the team get better while progressing as a player. I think Everton is the perfect place to do that”, he told Everton TV.

The 21-year-old midfielder said that Frank Lampard played a huge factor in him choosing Everton since he was one of the best midfielders in English football: “I can’t wait to get started. The manager has got a real plan for the club and for me. Working with him on a daily basis is major for me. Him and his staff can take me and the team to the next level. That’s what I’m hoping for”.

It won’t be long until James Garner faces his former club because Manchester United will face Everton at Goodison Park on October 9th in the Premier League. Although it will be tough seeing him playing as a rival, hopefully, he will be a starter in Frank Lampard’s team by that time.
