Neville delighted with Everton's Jagielka capture

Everton captain Phil Neville is delighted with the club's capture of Sheffield United defender Phil Jagielka.

Neville told the Liverpool Echo: "Without doubt, he's been Sheffield United's best player over the last three years and he was comfortably their best player in the Premiership.

"He stood out when he played at Goodison last season. He looked a very good defender and with his versatility, he will be a valuable asset for the team. He is young and is not a short term signing. He is here for the long term.

"We are signing one player who can play in three different positions, four if you count goalkeeper. With the size of the squad that we have got, that is going to be invaluable. Last season, versatility meant that a lot of players played in a lot of different positions. It will be the same this season."
