Everton have signed Manchester United midfielder Darron Gibson for an undisclosed fee.

Gibson has inked a four-and-a-half-year deal at Goodison Park after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.

The 24-year-old is Everton's second signing of this month's transfer window following the arrival of Landon Donovan back at Goodison Park on loan from LA Galaxy.

Gibson found himself well down the pecking order at Old Trafford in the last 18 months and has made just two appearances in the first-team this season.

The Republic of Ireland international has been tipped for a move away from United for some time with a proposed switch to Sunderland last summer falling through and now Everton have moved to bring him to Merseyside.

Gibson's arrival will come as a major boost for Everton boss David Moyes with his squad hit by a series of injuries in recent weeks.
