Rúben Vinagre has joined Everton on a season long loan from Sporting Clube de Portugal

Rúben Vinagre has joined Everton on a season long loan from Sporting Clube de Portugal. The Toffees announced: “Everton have completed the loan signing of defender Rúben Vinagre from Sporting Clube de Portugal for the 2022/23 season.

“The 23-year-old Portuguese, who can play on the left side of defence and as a left wing-back, is Blues manager Frank Lampard’s second addition of the summer after the arrival of James Tarkowski.

“A pacy defender who is comfortable on the ball and adept at crossing, Vinagre reunites with Director of Football, Kevin Thelwell, who first brought him to English football in 2017 when he was Sporting Director at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

“Vinagre, who will wear shirt number 29 for Everton this season, could make his first Blues appearance in Friday’s pre-season friendly against Dynamo Kyiv at Goodison Park (7.45pm BST).”

“It’s a dream come true to join a big club like Everton,” Vinagre told evertontv. “The opportunity to work with very good players. And a very good coach in Frank Lampard made me excited to sign.

“The manager is a football legend. Everybody knows him and the opportunity to work with and learn from him. And someone like Ashley Cole – one of football’s best left-backs – is very big for me.

“Kevin was important, too, because he knows me very well from when we worked together at Wolves. He explained to me about Everton’s proud history and the qualities you need here. Because it’s a very big club and you have to give everything for the supporters.”

Manager Lampard added: “I’m looking forward to working with Rúben this season. He’s a player with Premier League experience who will add quality and depth to our squad. It’s important to have competition for places and bringing Rúben in gives us more options.”
