Defender Ramiro Funes Mori has left Everton to join La Liga side Villarreal after three years at Goodison Park.

The 27-year-old has completed a move for an undisclosed fee, having made 67 appearances for the Toffees across three seasons.

However, having suffered a serious knee injury when on international duty with Argentina in March 2017, he featured in just four games last season.

Funes Mori, who has signed a four-year deal with Villarreal, was included in Argentina's preliminary World Cup squad but failed to make the final 23-man group Jorge Sampaoli has taken to Russia.

Manchester United have completed the signing of Brazil midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donestsk, the Premier League club have announced.

The 25-year-old has signed a five-year contract, with the option to extend for a further year, after completing a medical.

United reached an agreement with Shakhtar earlier this month, with the Premier League club reportedly paying a fee in excess of £50million.

Fred told the club's website, www.manutd.com: "This is the biggest club in the world and I am delighted to be a part of this amazing team. To work with Jose Mourinho, who has won so many trophies in his time as a coach, is an opportunity not to be missed.

"I cannot wait to get started and to meet my new team-mates. I would like to thank everyone at Shakhtar Donetsk for everything they have done for me over the past five years.

"This is a very exciting time for me with my focus now fully on the World Cup with Brazil."

Fred missed Brazil's opening match of the World Cup, a 1-1 draw against Switzerland on Sunday with an ankle injury.

United boss Mourinho said: "Fred will complement our other midfielders' qualities. His creative brain and passing vision will give us another dimension to our game.

"I am very happy he is joining our club and I believe our players know how important he can be in our team."
