Out-of-favour Tottenham midfielder joins Everton on loan

first_img Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon 1 Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon has joined Everton on loan for the remainder of the season, the  Premier League sides have confirmed.The Toffees beat a host of other top flight clubs to the experienced Spurs speedster, with the likes of Hull, Stoke and Leicester also keen on the 27-year-old.Lennon – currently Spurs’ longest serving player – has been a first-team regular throughout his time at White Hart Lane following his arrival from Leeds in 2005, but has struggled for game time in manager Mauricio Pochettino’s first season in charge.And with his career in north London drifting, he has looked to reignite his form with Everton where his presence on the flank – opposite Toffees star Kevin Mirallas – will surely be a boost to struggling striker Romelu Lukaku.The Merseyside outfit have confirmed Lennon will be eligible to play in Saturday’s derby clash with Liverpool at Goodison Park, and manager Roberto Martinez believes the midfielder will be a valuable addition to the Toffees squad.He told the club’s official website: “We all know what Aaron will bring to our squad with his experience and know-how, his involvement with England in two World Cups and the landmarks he has set in the Premier League.“At 27, Aaron will be a really important asset to our squad and he will represent a real boost in terms of attacking options from now to the end of the season. His pace and trickery will fit in well at Goodison.”last_img
