Back in the summer, Jean-Philippe Gbamin left Everton as a free agent.

The midfielder had joined the Toffees in a €25m deal back in 2019, and after failing to impress over those years, partly down to fitness issues, he ended up walking away from Goodison Park.

It may have taken a few months, but according to L’Equipe, Gbamin has finally signed for his first club after Everton.

The outlet reports that the 28-year-old agreed to a short-term contract with USL Dunkerque, and will stay at the second division side until the end of the season.

It’s said Gbamin wanted to be close to his family, who live near Lille, so that was a good personal move for him.

Everton signed the midfielder from Mainz back in 2019. He had time to prove himself at the Toffees, but largely didn’t play because of his injuries.

Gbamin was then loaned to the likes of CSKA Moscow and Trabzonspor, where he couldn’t play a lot either. He left Everton with only eight appearances for the club, and will hopefully be fit to have more minutes in France.
