Everton wrap up deal for Sheffield Utd's Jagielka

Everton have completed the £4 million signing of Sheffield United defender Phil Jagielka.

The 24-year-old signed a five-year deal just one day after the Blades' appeal over their relegation to the Championship was dismissed.

Jagielka had a clause in his contract allowing him to leave Bramall Lane if his club went down.

"When I played here last season the fans were fantastic and hopefully I'll get to run out sooner rather than later," he told Everton's website.

Wigan and Bolton had also been linked to Jagielka, who was released by Everton as a youngster.
