Everton land first summer signing
Tuesday 26 August 2008
Everton have completed the signing of Denmark right-back Lars Jacobsen on a free transfer.
Jacobsen, 28, underwent a medical yesterday and the free agent defender, who was with German club Nurnberg last season, has agreed a one-year deal.
Everton confirmed this morning Jacobsen has finalised his switch to Goodison Park.
He will be available for Saturday's Premier League clash with Portsmouth providing Everton receive his registration from the German Football Association.
Moyes will hope Jacobsen is the first of several signings this week, with the need to bring in new faces now urgent as next Monday's transfer deadline approaches.
The Everton boss accepted at the weekend that his squad needed quantity as well as quality, and suggested he required "six or seven" new players, some of which could be brought to the club on loan.
