Lennon spent nine seasons at Tottenham, making more than 350 appearances for the club. He also played for England at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups.
However, Lennon was not in Mauricio Pochettino’s plans when he took over at White Hart Lane, and was loaned to Everton last January. He made 14 appearances for the Toffees and score two goals during his loan.
Everton manager Roberto Martinez was very happy to have Lennon back at Goodison Park, as the highly-experienced player can help his side push on in the Premier League.
We are delighted to welcome Aaron back to Everton. We know we are getting a player our fans know inside out. He had a major role in the second half of our season and we’re looking forward to Aaron kicking on and continuing to enjoy his football, as well as being the productive player we know he can be.
He is well-respected in the dressing room, his experience in the Premier League is immense and he will immediately add to our squad and to the ambition we have as a club.”
