Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has completed his switch to Everton for £28 million after signing a five-year-deal with the Merseyside club, SkySPORTS reports.
The 21-year-old revealed his delight to finally put his drama with the Blues behind as he makes a permanent move to the club he was on loan with the previous season.
Lukaku said: “I am really excited about rejoining Everton. I had a fantastic experience last season and a great relationship with the manager, the chairman, the staff, the players and the fans. I can’t wait to get started again and I’m looking forward to a successful season.
“I have a good relationship with the players. This is the place where I belong. I decided quickly I wanted to come back. Here I have the trust of the staff and supporters.”
Toffees manager Roberto Martinez also added: “It’s a very significant day in the history of our Club. Signing Rom is every Evertonian’s wish. This is a footballing statement of what we want to do. Rom will never say it but his target should be to become one of the best world-class strikers.”
