Everton have successfully signed Muhamed Besic from Ferencvaros on a five-year deal after catching the eye of Roberto Martinez with his display for Bosnia-Herzegovina at the World Cup, BBC reports.

This completes the Toffees second signing of the summer after agreeing a permanent move for Gareth Barry who was on a season-long loan at the club.

Martinez revealed his admiration for the 21-year-old defensive midfielder who he believes will have a big impact on the club.

“Muhamed is a young footballer who has developed massively in the last two seasons,” he told the club’s official website.

“He has been playing as a centre-half and as a defensive midfielder at an incredible level.

“He showed in the World Cup that he is a really mature footballer, that he covers the ground really well, that he is very dynamic and technically very gifted.

“He is bringing us really good strength in an important part of the side.”
