New Everton manager Ronald Koeman has completed the signing of his first outfield player after Idrissa Gueye joined the club from Aston Villa.

The Toffees triggered the Senegal international's £7.1million buyout clause last week and the 26-year-old has agreed a four-year deal at Goodison Park.

Gueye is Koeman's second signing since he took over from the sacked Roberto Martinez in mid-June, having brought in Maarten Stekelenburg from Fulham.

Villa confirmed the Italian's appointment as Remi Garde's permanent successor on Friday morning, signing a two-year contract.

He arrives at a club in a tailspin, suffering the effects of problems both on and off the pitch which culminated in relegation from the Premier League following just three league wins - and four managers.

Despite returning to management at Championship level, the former West Brom and Chelsea boss is relishing the challenge of what lies ahead as he attempts to repeat his success with the Baggies in 2010 by winning promotion back to the top flight.

He said: "It's a wonderful honour for me to become manager of this great football club and I'm looking forward to the challenge of taking Aston Villa back to its rightful place."
