Winger Toni Duggan has completed a return to Everton eight years on from initially leaving the club according to reports on The Blue Girls’ official website.
The 29-year-old 76-times capped England international came through the Merseyside club’s youth ranks before making her breakthrough into the first team in 2007/2008. The player spent six years in the senior side before joining Manchester City in 2013.
With Duggan having left former club Atletico Madrid this summer it has been confirmed that she has returned to Everton on a free transfer. The player has signed a two-year deal at Walton Hall Park.
After completing her Everton return, Duggan said “It feels so good to be back home. This is the club I started out at when I was younger.
“To be back here now, it’s an amazing feeling. As soon as I knew I could return to Everton, I was coming back.”
Since leaving Everton, Duggan has won a whole host of trophies. She was a league title winner, a Women’s FA Cup winner and an FA Women’s Continental League Cup double winner with Manchester City while she won the Spanish Cup and two regional cups with Barcelona. Last season saw Duggan lift the Spanish Super Cup with Atletico Madrid.
The player is likely to now play a leading role for new club Everton after being handed their number nine shirt.
