Everton midfielder Davy Klaassen has joined German side Werder Bremen.
Klaassen, who joined Everton from Ajax for £23.6m last summer, departs Goodison Park after a disappointing 12 months where he failed to hold down a regular starting place under any of Everton's three managers last season.
The 25-year-old, who only made three starts in the Premier League, arrived in Germany on Thursday night before passing a medical and signing for the Bundesliga side for a fee believed to be around £12m.
The Netherlands international was told by new manager Marco Silva there was no place for him in his Everton plans but believes he has found a suitable home with Bremen.
