Everton announced on Monday a season-long loan deal with Wolverhampton Wanderers for captain Conor Coady, who has played 10 times for England.

The 29-year-old Coady started his career across the city with Liverpool, but said he was “desperate to come here, to play for this club. I’ve got family and friends who are massive Evertonians.”

With Coady on his way out for the season, Wolves also announced the arrival of winger Goncalo Guedes on a five-year deal from Valencia.

“We have been monitoring Goncalo for a long time and are very pleased to welcome him to Wolves,” club chairman Jeff Shi said of the 25-year-old forward.

“He has natural talent and has performed very well across Europe and for his country, and we think he is well suited to the Premier League.

“Goncalo worked with Bruno [Lage] at Benfica and played with many members of our squad previously, so we’re confident he will settle quickly into the group here.”

Guedes joined Valencia in 2017 from Paris Saint-Germain and made nearly 200 appearances in all competitions for the Spanish club, scoring 40 goals and providing 32 assists.

Everton’s need for a central defender grew when Ben Godfrey, another England international, injured his right leg on Saturday in a 1-0 home loss against Chelsea. Godfrey had surgery on a fractured fibula and is set to be out for three months, Everton said.

Godfrey suffered the injury on Saturday as he made a last-ditch recovery tackle following a poor pass and the 24-year-old was taken off the pitch and straight to a hospital.

“Ben Godfrey underwent successful surgery this morning on the fractured fibula he sustained,” Everton said. “The defender will now begin rehabilitation at Finch Farm under the care of the club’s medical team and is expected to be out for around three months.”

Everton said defender Yerry Mina suffered an ankle ligament injury in the second half of the game and will see a specialist this week to discover the full extent of the problem.

The Merseyside club, who are without injured striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin for up to six weeks, travel to Aston Villa on Saturday.

Portugal winger Goncalo Guedes has joined Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers on a five-year deal from Valencia, both clubs said on Monday.

Wolves did not disclose any financial details but British media said the fee was 27.5 million pounds ($33.21 million).

“We have been monitoring Goncalo for a long time and are very pleased to welcome him to Wolves,” club chairman Jeff Shi said of the 25-year-old forward.

“He has natural talent and has performed very well across Europe and for his country, and we think he is well suited to the Premier League.

“Goncalo worked with Bruno (Lage) at Benfica and played with many members of our squad previously, so we’re confident he will settle quickly into the group here.”

Guedes joined Valencia in 2017 from Paris St Germain and made nearly 200 appearances in all competitions for the Spanish club, scoring 40 goals and providing 32 assists.

In 2019, he helped Valencia win the Copa del Rey.

“Very few transfers are ever straightforward, and this was no exception, with a number of clubs trying to secure the player right up until the last minute. Now, we are delighted that Goncalo is a Wolves player,” Shi added.
