Demarai Gray set for Al-Ettifaq move

According to Fabrizio Romano, Al-Ettifaq expect to complete the signing of Demarai Gray from Everton very soon. The personal terms between the player and the Saudi club have already been agreed, and the talks with Everton are close to a positive conclusion.

The 27-year-old winger recently puzzled Everton chiefs by “informing” them that his transfer was done, as manager Sean Dyche revealed, and the club replied that no move would be done without them agreeing to it. However, it seems that is now close, with Everton obviously aware that Gray would be out of contract at the end of the season.

Gray rose through the academy ranks at Birmingham City. In January 2016, he joined Leicester City where he spent five years, and then six months with Bayer Leverkusen before making his way to Everton for only €2 million in the summer of 2021. In 75 appearances in all competitions for the Toffees, he has scored 12 goals and laid on six assists.
