DONE DEAL: Salomon Rondon elated after reuniting with Benitez at Everton

Everton have completed the signing of Salomon Rondon from Chinese club Dalian Professional on a free-transfer.

The 31-year-old striker has signed a two-year contract with his new club.

Rondon has previous Premier League experience with West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United, working at the latter with Everton boss Rafa Benitez.

After making the switch, Rondon told the club's website: "I'm really glad to be back in the Premier League. It's a competition I enjoyed playing in and where I felt the fans' support in every game.

"Defending the colours of a club with a history as rich as Everton's fills me with pride. I can't wait to pull on the shirt and be reunited with Rafa Benítez, a coach who has changed the way I understand the game. I'm really grateful for the faith he's shown in me."
