Lennon: It was Everton or bust

Aaron Lennon Everton 12Aaron Lennon has reaffirmed that Everton was the only option he considered as he left Tottenham Hotspur in the summer.

The 28 year old was a deadline day signing for the Toffees ten days ago after the Blues finally secured his services on a three year deal and, after publically revealing that he only wanted to move to Merseyside following a successful loan spell in the second half of the 2014/15 campaign, Lennon stated once again that he was only committed to playing under manager Roberto Martinez at Goodison Park.

“There were other clubs interested but to be honest I didn’t really even entertain it,” he said.

“Everton was the one for me, it was the one I was waiting for regardless of anything else.

“Honestly, I just sat their hoping this deal would go through, and thankfully it did.

“From the loan spell you have a feeling of what you want and I was willing to wait until the very last day, the very last hour for this one to happen.”
