Everton news: Allan joins UAE club and joins former Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal

Everton midfielder Allan has joined Abu Dhabi side Al Wahda on a two-year deal after falling out of favour at Goodison Park.

The 31-year-old, who arrived from Napoli in the summer of 2020 as one of Carlo Ancelotti's signings, has not played a single minute of football for Frank Lampard's team this season. 

He was deemed surplus to requirements after the arrivals of Idrissa Gana Gueye and Amadou Onana and as a result a deal was struck to allow him to join the UAE Pro League club.

In an official statement, the club said: "Wahda FC have signed Brazilian player Alan Marcos in a permanent transfer deal from English club Everton on a two-season contract as part of the club's efforts to strengthen the first team ranks and meet the requirements for success.

"The club's board of directors welcomed Alan to the home of the champions, wishing him all the best during his journey with the team.

"For his part, Alan praised the professional work during the completion of the contract procedure, expressing his happiness to join the home of champions, and his desire to contribute to more achievements and victories."

Allan will now link up with former Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea City manager Carlos Carvalhal.

The team have got off to a slow start in the league, having lost two and drawn one of their opening three games.

Al Wahda finished third last season, which marked their best finish since the 2018/19 campaign.
