Dele Alli has joined Everton on a permanent deal from Tottenham after completing a medical late on Deadline Day.
The attacking midfielder has signed a two-and-a-half year contract with Everton, who have also appointed Frank Lampard as their new manager.
It has been reported that Dele is initially joining on a free transfer, with the fee potentially rising to £40million depending on performance-related add-ons.

“I’m delighted to have signed for Everton, a huge club with a great fanbase and history," said the 25-year-old.
“I'm eager to get started and can't wait for my first game in an Everton shirt. I’m looking forward to helping the team and the opportunity to work with the new manager Frank Lampard."
Dele made a bright start after joining Spurs from MK Dons in 2015 and was soon called up to make his England debut.
He was named the PFA Young Player of the Year in 2015/16 and 2016/17 and also included in the PFA Team of the Year in both seasons.
However, his form has dipped over the last few years and he has found himself on the fringes of the Tottenham first team.
He has made 18 appearances in all competitions so far this season but the majority have been from the bench or under previous manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
Alli has not featured in an England squad since 2019 and has fallen behind the likes of Jack Grealish, Mason Mount and Phil Foden in the pecking order.
He is Everton’s second midfield addition after they signed Donny van de Beek on loan from Manchester United.
Tottenham, meanwhile, have let Tanguy Ndombele return to Lyon on loan after just 18 months at the club.
