The Ghana international winger moved to the Toffees on a season-long loan deal after being deemed surplus to requirements by Blues manager Jose Mourinho.

The 22-year-old joined Chelsea on a five-year contract in the summer of 2013 from Portuguese club Porto, but was immediately loaned out to Eredivisie outfit Vitesse.

Atsu had a good time in the Netherlands in the 2013-14 campaign and will now showcase his talent for Everton in the Premier League.

“After the World Cup, when I came back to Chelsea they told me of Everton’s interest,” the youngster said, quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

“I told them Everton were a great club and I would prefer to play for them. I think Everton is a great club with a great manager and they try to play football, which is very important for me.

“When I was training with Chelsea, a lot of the players told me Everton is a great club.

“I have been here a week now and I am so happy with the players, with everyone. I have had warm wishes from the fans on social networks as well, so I am very happy.

“I had a lot of messages and a lot of new followers who are Everton fans, which is great.”

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
