The 26 year old signed from Aston Villa this morning and, as well as playing for Villa at Goodison Park last season, also played for Lille in the Europa League two seasons ago.
He is aware of the size of the club he is joining and says he is excited to play alongside the players he is joining.
He said, “I am very happy to be here at Everton and I am very happy and excited to put on the Blue shirt to start the new season here.
“Everton is a big team with big players and great fans. The manager told me he is very happy to have me here and that we will have time to talk about football after.
“I am a defensive midfield player and I like making passes and also getting forward.
“I have played a season with Aston Villa which was a hard season but I think my style is good for the Premier League. You have to fight every game. All the teams are strong and you have to concentrate all through the game.
“Goodison Park is a very good stadium and the fans are very good, too. They push their team forward and I am excited to play there.”
