The French international has established himself as arguably the best left-back in the Premier League and the Toffees' assist king and while he credits the ambition under Farhad Moshiri and Carlo Ancelotti as one of the big reasons why he wanted to extend his stay at Goodison Park, he also highlighted his relationship with the fans.
“The fans made me feel at home from the beginning, they showed me big love and created a song for me,” Digne told evertontv. “It is something I really appreciate and it is very important for me to keep the stability.
“We have a big project with the Club and can reach something very good at the end of this season and for the next few years.
“I want to play in Europe and Everton is the best place to do that. I have seen the progress every year since joining the Club, we are building a strong team.
“When you sign for Everton, it is like an amazing wedding. You just have to do your best every day to show Evertonians the love you have for them. That is what I do.
“I want to show them what they give me and it is just amazing. It was clear in my mind that I want to continue with Everton.”
Everton signed Digne from Catalan giants Barcelona for £18m in 2018 and was named Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year in his first season.
He has played 95 times in all competitions for the club and scored five goals, including a couple of spectacular free-kicks, and has underlined his versatility this year by playing in a more advanced left-wing role under Ancelotti.
Since he signed for Everton, no left-back has created more chances in Europe's top five leagues than Digne.

A few more like him around the squad and anything is possible.
3 Posted 24/02/2021 at 17:33:35
I must agree with Darren – he is better attacking than defending, but quality in the top 3rd. Wingback with Godfrey behind him as a left centre-back.
4 Posted 24/02/2021 at 17:35:18
I thought Man City may have come in for him.
Best left-back in the league for me.< Struggling with a couple of injuries lately, a sign of his commitment that he is prepared to play while not 100% fit.
Ancelotti won't play with three centre-halves in the long-term, Ian.
A committed back-four man.
5 Posted 24/02/2021 at 17:36:43
Digne, Godfrey, Holgate, Davies, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, Branthwaite, Small, Gordon – all young and developing.

We are getting to a stage now that we are becoming a very strong team. Strengthening in the summer can be much more focused on just one or maybe two real top quality players.

Great that he wanted to recover speedily and get back into the side as soon as possible but I am not totally convinced that such a quick return was for the very best, all considered. If he finishes the season well, though, I would not be surprised if Man City went for him this coming June or next.
13 Posted 24/02/2021 at 18:31:31
We are on the march!

16 Posted 24/02/2021 at 18:38:10
Going forward, he's one of the best around, like his predecessor.
17 Posted 24/02/2021 at 19:10:03
Either way, I'm delighted with this. I know it's hard, particularly on the younger generation and because of the countless false dawns, but it really feels like something is happening at Everton right now.
18 Posted 24/02/2021 at 19:11:27
We don't use him enough from direct free-kicks either. He should have first pop anywhere up to 35 yards out, but Richarlison and Sigurdsson seem to get more chance of having a go, often ending in disappointment.
19 Posted 24/02/2021 at 19:16:08
Agree 100% though.
20 Posted 24/02/2021 at 19:34:14
This has worked well in away games when teams have to come at us, or against the better teams at Goodison. But it exposes our weakness against the “poorer” teams against whom we have struggled at home.
I suspect that is going to be the conundrum to be solved over the summer, who can we bring in that will give us additional creativity in midfield and attack without weakening the defence? Despite the frustrations many of us have around Richarlison, it also stresses the importance of his work rate.
21 Posted 24/02/2021 at 19:48:35
Am I the only one who has noticed that inch-for-inch he's the best fullback in the Prem in the air? I mean the guy is 5'-10" and he never seems to lose an aerial duel. There's actually a Premier League stat that tracks this, and it says that in Digne's time at Everton he's won more than two-thirds of his contested headers:
Aerial battles won: 242
Aerial battles lost: 118
That's astonishing. By contrast, Coleman (also 5'-10") wins about 40% of his aerial contests. Bainesy was about the same.
As they'd say in the NBA, Digne has serious hops.
22 Posted 24/02/2021 at 20:53:04
23 Posted 24/02/2021 at 20:56:53
24 Posted 24/02/2021 at 21:51:04
I agree. This is a welcome change.
25 Posted 24/02/2021 at 22:17:50
26 Posted 24/02/2021 at 22:24:59
I like defender's firstly to be good defenders, hard to beat or get past. Godfrey has been outstanding in this respect. But he's not an attacking full back.
Digne has stepped into Baines role very well and they have very similar attributes. Both defensively week but have great delivery on crosses from open play.
To consistently challenge for top honours at home and in Europe we will need better but there are others area's of greater concern.
27 Posted 24/02/2021 at 22:29:02
A Traore, who has pace and muscle to bully his way in when playing against Digne, Godfrey can start and Digne play as left wing who we know will track back and provide additional cover. With Nkounkou in the pipeline left-back position is covered.
Right-back we know Holgate can play there. Similar to Godfrey if we need someone as attacking as Coleman, we need to buy.
28 Posted 24/02/2021 at 22:42:22
He's a versatile player with a sweet left foot, but his dead ball and crossing and shooting prowess is exceptional but core defending needs improving.
But all players have potential and can with grit determination, and belief improve.
Tom Davies is in a rich vein of form and his confidence and self-belief is great to see.
Let's hope that the last few days where Everton have beaten Liverpool, Bramley-Moore Dock, council approval and beaten the United U23s, is not diluted next Monday vs Southampton.
Everton must knock the smirk off Mr Ed's best mate next Monday. Let's hope Everton can get the win, and build momentum for the run-in.
29 Posted 24/02/2021 at 23:30:49
Contract renewals mean nothing in terms of commitment from players, rather simply ensuring wages for x amount of years.
30 Posted 24/02/2021 at 23:46:35
As for Digne's quality, we are much better with him than we would be without him. I agree he came back too soon and can get done by wingers in one-on-ones. However, Ancelloti is using him in ways that minimise those risks and, as a result, he is very effective under him.
Hope we can keep the derby attitude for Southampton and keep the good news train rolling.
31 Posted 25/02/2021 at 00:32:24
32 Posted 25/02/2021 at 00:55:22
Against teams that we will give possession away to, I like the option of Digne in midfield with Godfrey behind as he gives that defensive solidity. Lucas can make something happen with a cross and gives something more in midfield. I don't see it as a defensive or negative deployment now, I think he plays as an attacking midfielder in some games anyway.
Against teams with less threat, he could play the attacking full-back role, with a more attacking option like Richarlison ahead of him creating the overlaps.
He's an intelligent player and I think between him, Ben and Niels on the left it looks quite good.
Mason Holgate, Seamus Coleman and perhaps Max Aarons could create a similar trio over on the right? Offering options for the deployment of one or two of those in games as I suggested above, and offering good cover.
33 Posted 25/02/2021 at 01:41:50
34 Posted 25/02/2021 at 01:48:24
35 Posted 25/02/2021 at 02:18:52
The game has moved on, full backs are generally converted wingers these days.
Digne is as good as it gets in the prem. His quality is sorely missed when he isn't in the team.
Great bit of business by the club.
36 Posted 25/02/2021 at 03:15:22
He's a good footballer, no doubt. A big asset, no doubt. His presence gives us balance. He gives us a different dimension going forward... but the best left-back in the Premier League? He's not even the best left-back at the club. We have a centre-half who is a better left-back than he is.
I'd rather celebrate a player's assets. Foolish claims do nobody any favours. What next? James is our best defensive midfielder?
37 Posted 25/02/2021 at 03:50:05
Every player has had a bad game at some point for us, but Digne has less of those than anybody else, long may that continue, I haven't counted Ben Godfrey in that before anyone points that out, as he has only been with us a short time.
38 Posted 25/02/2021 at 04:32:29
As pointed out about his winning of aerial battles, he has also shown that he is adaptable even at centreback. While we are unlikely to want to or have to play him there, it shows his tactical nous and footballing abilities. He is coming into his peak years, like Baines did. Hopefully, it will coincide with trophies.
To see yet another left-back and left-footer put in those crosses and deadballs... Glad that the club continues to have quality left-backs.
39 Posted 25/02/2021 at 07:02:13
Hinchcliffe had a good spell and a cultivated left foot. Has to be Baines in my lifetime, but even then, he was behind a centre-back as second-choice for left-back in his early Everton career due to doubts over his defensive abilities.
I like Lucas, he is a very very good attacking full-back. Not the best in the league but good enough to be part of (hopefully) our next great team.
40 Posted 25/02/2021 at 07:30:31
Who would you consider to be a better left-back in the Premier League, Danny?
41 Posted 25/02/2021 at 07:36:53
He is the best left-back in the league in my opinion and can also cover centre-back and left-wing. When he is out the team or off-form, it affects the team overall – that's how you know a player is top drawer.
42 Posted 25/02/2021 at 07:42:22
43 Posted 25/02/2021 at 08:16:42
He will be a key player in the future of Everton. I'm so pleased that he has committed himself to the club and speaks so well and highly of it.
44 Posted 25/02/2021 at 08:16:46
I'd disagree with Darren because, in the modern game, I'd say that Digne is a better left-back than Godfrey, who I'm sure he was alluding to, but Godfrey is a much better defender, and I'm sure will become the best central defender in the country, if he can go and leap like Digne, because I'm not sure how good Ben is going to be in the air.
45 Posted 25/02/2021 at 08:22:58
Digne not the best left-back at the club???
Why do you talk such nonsense mate? It's like you are on a permanent wind-up...
46 Posted 25/02/2021 at 08:56:52
Of course there are better defenders – but see Tony Hibbert as an example of one who stuck to his guns like a defender from the past...
The game has moved on and our fixed definition of the job of the player needs to move on too, whether we like it or not. Those who don't adapt, but prefer to stick to the job description from a game long gone will be left back (excuse the pun).
47 Posted 25/02/2021 at 09:17:39
48 Posted 25/02/2021 at 09:23:46
In the modern game, full back is the position with the most space available - since centre mid is so congested.
You can play 4 centre halves to good effect but it vastly limits your attacking potency which leads to things like the Newcastle debacle.
It remains important to block crosses etc too but the team structure helps to address that (ie covering midfield players) not just the individual's diligence.
49 Posted 25/02/2021 at 09:35:25
If I go off the past few seasons, I have liked the look of Chilwell. Still only 23 as well so he will get better.
And, I hate to swear, so I won't, but there's a very good left back across the park; can't deny he has been a revelation for them. Feel unclean, 10 hail Mary's for me.
I probably was being harsh Tony. Pat was a good footballer, I just don't recall him being the best. I like your centre back call, he was good when in that role.
I too can see Digne being captain. He has that presence about him.
50 Posted 25/02/2021 at 10:11:32
51 Posted 25/02/2021 at 10:49:39
Spot on. Citys ‘left back appeared to playing mostly in central midfield last night. The ‘jumpers for goalposts contributors wont get it though.
52 Posted 25/02/2021 at 11:01:24
53 Posted 25/02/2021 at 11:14:29
54 Posted 25/02/2021 at 11:52:41
I also happen to think his overall defensive workrate is quite good. Sure, he's been roasted badly on a few occasions, but I rarely feel any concern over his ability to get the job done.
55 Posted 25/02/2021 at 12:25:33
56 Posted 25/02/2021 at 12:27:50
All of: Shaw, Saka, Tierney, Roberton,Chilwell, Castagne, Justin, Cresswell, Targett, Digne, Zinchenko, Reguillon are excellent players.
Similar could be said of the right side.
It is a signal to the way the game is played now, and full backs are just as important to attacking fluidity as are centre-forwards and creative midfielders.
Clearly, they need to be solid defensively, but you see with the likes of Wan-Bissaka, while he is excellent defensively, Man Utd will probably look for someone else as he simply doesn't offer enough going forward. The key thing really is that they have the fitness and pace to get up and down the pitch, can read the game well enough to not get caught out positionally.
The much lauded Lampety for example, while an exciting talent, has almost zero positional awareness and just roams the pitch like a no10.
Also, it's important that when one full back goes forward, the other stays back and helps keep shape, this way the centre midfielders can easily cover the departed full back in case of a counter attack.
In terms of Digne, he's certainly amongst the best. His crossing and link up play is excellent 90% of the time, he's hard working and disciplined. he's as good as we could hope to get. If we had a Digne on the right hand side, we'd be a much more dangerous team.
57 Posted 25/02/2021 at 12:52:23
He would gush over his talent and skill whilst equally raging at his "laziness" and unwillingness to "mess his hair up" (his words not mine - I always referred to one of his goals in the 5 - 0 destruction of United to counter that).
Joking aside, we both saw what you saw. Pat was the left back, Sheedy the left midfielder. As most are saying here, much more is expected of full backs in the attacking sense now. Also, not just positions, but formations fluctuate during the match much more now. We're not quite NFL in swapping out most of the team depending on offence / defence, but you do see teams' formations and players' positions shift depending on whether they are attacking or defending. Certainly a lot more than we used to.
Sheedy, similarly to comments about James, played the game in his own time at his own pace. Slowed it down to see things others didn't or couldn't. His patience in a pressure cooker of a match to wait for the right moment to slip the ball through for the 3rd goal against Bayern. Waiting on the edge of the box, Gwladys Street end with the Norwich defence in front of him. Had he hit a brick wall as he seemed to stop? No, patience. Waited for the runner (Heath) then bemused the defenders with an unexpected lobbed pass right over their heads.
Sometimes moments like that were more enjoyable than the Sheedy goals and free kicks themselves.
With Digne and Nkounkou, I think we look covered on the left. We have a strong centre back 4; strong enough for it not to be a priority this summer. Defensive priorities are clearly Seamus' replacement.
58 Posted 25/02/2021 at 13:02:25

60 Posted 25/02/2021 at 14:17:21
61 Posted 25/02/2021 at 14:17:44
Best left-back in my time, without hesitation: Ray Wilson.
62 Posted 25/02/2021 at 14:26:11
63 Posted 25/02/2021 at 14:34:35
The days of having Hibbert, Lescott, even Godfrey at full back are long gone. You might get away with it for a couple of games, like we have with Godfrey this season. But the days of having a pure stopper at full back are long gone. The centre of the pitch is now so congested that full backs are a key outlet going forward.
Weve been blessed to have Coleman and Baines for so long. Digne is comparable to Baines, and Aarons seems well regarded, though I havent seen much of him. Hopefully he could be the long term successor to Coleman.
64 Posted 25/02/2021 at 14:48:17
Too early for us to be honest, but Manure were fresh, excuse the anomaly, it was expected because we were playing so well, that we would add the FA Cup to our Trophy haul that season.
I remember it vividly, because I was there, Pat backed off, and backed off, an advancing Norman Whiteside, down United's right side. Why he never characteristically stopped him by the half-way line is still a mystery.
Of course we all know what happened after that. How elation after winning the Cup Winners Cup, could turn so quickly to disappointment, was a shock in itself. A very quiet bus on the way home.
There is little chance that these days, any team would be expected to play two major Finals in the space of three days.
65 Posted 25/02/2021 at 14:48:35
66 Posted 25/02/2021 at 14:51:20
Ben is a great defender but has not got a great left foot.
67 Posted 25/02/2021 at 15:01:09
I would have to disagree, folk hero that Pat was, he wasnt in the same league as a footballer as Baines. He just played in much better sides.
Baines on the other hand for a period of about four years was one of the best left backs in Europe. If it wasnt for the fact he played at the same time as the best left back thats played in the Premiership Ashley Cole, hed have got a lot more than the 30 caps he got. Also if hed been a different type of character hed have undoubtedly played for a title winning team, Ferguson tried to sign him on a few occasions.
68 Posted 25/02/2021 at 15:05:57
We also need to look at the link up play with wingers and Baines certainly benefitted with Pienar as his regular partner. Digne has had to put up with many different wingers in front of him, which forces him to be very adaptable. I think he would be even better with a fast, skillful REGULAR partner ahead of him.
69 Posted 25/02/2021 at 15:14:52
70 Posted 25/02/2021 at 15:23:33
It talks to the narrative that you don't need the best 11 players in every position to be the best team. You need the right ingredients, blend, formula; call it what you want. Because of our history, some of our best players have not played in our best teams. Baines is a good example. I always felt sorry for Peter Beardsley. We talk about gifted players looking up to see movement and seeing statues; that's how he must have seen it.
Derek; amazing isn't it and it was a disappointing day indeed. I genuinely hope that the "lost" generation and the new one get to experience the "disappointment" of losing an FA Cup final only days after winning a European trophy, which was only weeks after clinching the league title.
Success breeds success, but with it comes expectation. We were disappointed at the end of arguably our most successful season ever. And we wanted (expected) more.
71 Posted 25/02/2021 at 15:28:16
Bill #54, agreed. I think it should be pointed out that in addition to being terrific in the air, Digne defensively makes very few mistakes, rarely gets caught out of position and almost never gives the ball away. No, he's not a shutdown fullback defensively like a Hibbo or a Lescott, but he can always be counted on.
72 Posted 25/02/2021 at 15:40:12
What really impresses me is his attitude. Compare and contrast Digne and Moise Kean. Who do you want beside you in a ruck?
Football is still about heart. How many times do commentators and pundits use the old 'They wanted it more' line? You never heard it with Kean. You will always know it applies to Digne.
When I pay my money to watch the game, I want to know that the boys in the Blue shirt (Don't get me started on change kits) will leave it all on the pitch.
As the great Dave Hickson said... "I'd break every other bone in my body for any club I played for; I'd die for Everton." That is asking a bit too much. But Digne has that spirit. I'd play 11 of him if I could.
73 Posted 25/02/2021 at 15:47:24
I also understand what people mean when they say that the game has changed. Modern full-backs have to be an 'out' option to help attacking and provide assists etc.
But no they don't!
It's just that's how most coaches, players, fans and others want to play and set their teams up. From an entertainment perspective, I agree.
But, if we had wingers, creative and mobile midfielders, and, in general, much better attacking options, we wouldn't need both full-backs to attack as wingers and defend as defenders.
It's almost an impossible task for them.
74 Posted 25/02/2021 at 16:02:19
Mike Gaynes, a very good point. Baines was one of those players who, once the legs went, they seemed to go quickly. Gerrard (dry vomit) was another one.
Some players manage to adapt and prolong their career with a different approach. Others walk off the cliff edge so to speak.
75 Posted 25/02/2021 at 16:31:36
I always remember the affable John Bailey after the FA Cup Final in which he played well. He was spokesman for the club at that stage, only not to be in the team the following season. As you say, replaced by Van den Hauwe, a masterstroke, who was outstanding. Now Everton concern themselves with players getting up to speed.
76 Posted 25/02/2021 at 16:42:34
By the way, if anybody's interested, RBM/SB Nation posted a statistical and salary comparison of Digne to the other top left backs in the Premier League. Interesting stuff:
77 Posted 25/02/2021 at 17:41:42
Digne's a good player. He's versatile and proffessional. I like that he has signed again. I like that there is a thread where he is getting nice things said about him...but dear me ?
"Beat Leighton Baines out of the team" ? whatttt ? Thats like saying...Ah doesnt matter.
Lets try stick to the what happened rather than making stuff up. Baines was around 33 when Digne got here. The little niggles were taking longer to fix. His powers had been on a downward trajectory for a couple of years. He'd have deffo had a go, but he simply didnt have another full season left in him. Digne didnt come as an understudy. He was most definitely brought in to replace Bainsey.
The thread was worth revisitng though simply to see the claim that he is terrific in the air.
78 Posted 25/02/2021 at 17:55:10
Look I like Godfrey, hes been a revelation this year. Fast, strong and hungry. But hes a centre back whos got enough footballing ability to fill in at left back. Id be genuinely surprised if hes not first choice there for many years.
Digne is a modern full back who gives you a lot more attacking options.
79 Posted 25/02/2021 at 17:57:34
Look, a great servant and great player; to reiterate the best Everton left back I've witnessed.
Jerome; you touch on the old adage that if you are going to change, it has to be for improvement even if that means outing a popular player. Pat for John Bailey, Dave Watson for Derek Mountfield (I was a Watson doubter because of my loyalty to Deggsy). Improvement needs to look beyond the popularity contest even if that means swapping out a fans' favourite.
I would look to the 50s and 60s cohort to provide earlier examples as there are many examples of unpopular decisions at the time taken by managers that ultimately turned out to be for the benefit of improving the team and squad.
80 Posted 25/02/2021 at 18:03:56
81 Posted 25/02/2021 at 18:41:35
82 Posted 25/02/2021 at 19:29:42
You say that you want defenders to be able to defend as a priority though you also say the best left back in the league is Robertson! He can't defend to save his life but loves bombing on and has quality delivery.
Darren insists that he wants his defenders to defend but, when Ancelotti picks 4 defenders, he is a dinosaur and coward for not attacking more!
It's all about opinion comparing generations. Although good in their day, players from even 30 years ago would look very average in today's Premier League. The current rules encourage skill, speed and technique. Before the Premier League, the rules allowed a more physical approach.
83 Posted 25/02/2021 at 20:18:34
I hope you mean Shaw, because the other red who gets away with so many cynical fouls has been very poor this season, and in my opinion, he is good going forward, but not a great defender.
84 Posted 25/02/2021 at 20:35:02
85 Posted 25/02/2021 at 20:54:36
44 passes per match
38 Ariel battles won to 20 lost
Tackle success rate 56%
35 passes per match
66% tackle success rate
32 ariel battles won to 16 lost
There are clear differences, Godfrey is, to zero surprise, stronger defensively. But the stats don't exactly show Digne as a liability in that regard. And in an attacking sense, there is no comparison.
So to claim Godfrey is our best left back is just not true.
86 Posted 25/02/2021 at 21:07:37
My favourite Digne stat is that, in 97 Everton games, he's only not played the full 90 minutes twice (apart from when he got sent off against Southampton).
87 Posted 25/02/2021 at 21:26:47
The 'what hit me?' look on Pat N's face as he staggered up from the hoardings is, I think, still pretty fresh though.
I'm sure he signed for us not long after just so he didn't have to face the other Pat again.
Elbowing Speedy? I think most players either did or wanted to. He was the sort of player that you hated unless he was in your team, an eighties Robbie Savage.
88 Posted 25/02/2021 at 22:00:40
I think Digne got overplayed at times during his first couple of seasons though, and to the detriment of both himself and Leighton Baines, who definitely should have still been starting more games, because he was still one of the best players at our club.

I'm surprised we didn't use Baines more and phase Digne in Tony. That's what makes me think whether behind the scenes and on the training ground they were seeing things we don't. Seemed to hit 33 and then we didn't get more than 20 games (possibly less) out of him. Either he was underused or the legs had gone?

It's partly down to the individual as a footballer, but also how the team play and the player performing well in a role for that team on a consistent basis.
Digne is a good player. I would not class him as top class or world class but a very good attacking fullback.
Our lack of creative players further forward highlight why his attacking play and crossing is so important to us currently.
If Seamus could cross or pass a ball as good as Digne or JJK he would be on a par if not a better full back as I think he is slightly better defensively.
But he can't and although I still believe Seamus has another season in him, his poor distribution has always let him down.
However, when Shay came on to play as a wide midfielder I was very impressed with his runs, dribbling and even passing. I litterally couldn't believe how good he was.
Which also highlights how poor and desperate we are for a quality winger.
HAZARD please Carlo!

If they are not going to get Aarons for the right back role then why not Lamptey from Brighton who may still go down.
We have all loved Seamus over the last few years but like Bainsey his best days are mostly gone.
We must not get too cocky after the wonderful result against RS as the team still has to prove it can be consistent.
City are currently way ahead of the pack in many ways but with some astute acquisitions Everton could well be contenders for the title next season. It would be nice to have a team worthy of gracing such a magnificent new stadium when it's built.

Maybe Michael K, is right? So if we are never going to unite, then we have just got to believe instead, and Everton are a football club that has seen the Phoenix rise from the flames many times, and that's why your post above has got me dreaming, mate!

I'm not going to criticise and I'm not going to do the big "told you so". When many got carried away with a few good results just as many got hysterical with a few bad ones, up until now it was about staying in touch with the target. European football. That's what I've been saying all season, results and performances aside.
We are in touch, so job done so far. But now we're in the business phase of the season. Now we have to make games count and start to pull away just as a race horse kicks on in the final furlongs having stayed in the slip stream close to the pack.
European football and the FA Cup are on the table and ours to take. Get both or either then reinforce further than what we done last summer and who knows?

I loved watching him play
