He told evertontv: “It’s incredible to join Everton.
“As soon as I heard the interest, from the manager but also the football club itself, I really wanted to be part of it straight away. I’m over the moon to join.
“I’ve grown up around the city, I know the football club, how big this club is and what it means to the supporters.
“I’m someone who was desperate to come here, to play for this club. I’ve got family and friends who are massive Evertonians.
“I’m here to give absolutely everything I’ve got for this football club. It’s important I work as hard as I can to help my teammates, help the club move forward and make people proud.”
The Toffees also lost fellow centre-back Yerry Mina to an ankle injury during the 1-0 defeat at Goodison Park.
Coady began his career across Stanley Park at Anfield but got his first taste of senior football on loan at Sheffield United in 2013/14.
He then headed on a permanent move to Huddersfield Town the following campaign before Wolves snapped him up in 2016, where he went on to captain the club to promotion.
Everton director of football Kevin Thelwell said: “Conor is a top-quality player who I have had the pleasure of knowing for many years.
“I have no doubt he will be an excellent addition to Everton and our squad.
“Myself and Frank continue to work closely with our chairman, who has unrivalled experience in player negotiations and we are confident that, together, we will secure the further quality we’ve targeted between now and the end of the month.”
He will wear the number 30 shirt for the Blues after becoming their fourth signing of the summer transfer window after the arrivals of James Tarkowski, Ruben Vinagre and Dwight McNeil.
