Everton newcomers ready to get started

3 September 2013 13:23

Deadline-day additions Romelu Lukaku and Gareth Barry cannot wait to get started following their loan moves to Everton.

The pair completed the switch on Monday, along with Wigan's James McCarthy, as Everton enjoyed a busy final day of the transfer window.

Lukaku, who netted 17 goals in 35 league appearances while on loan to West Brom last season, opted to spend another campaign away from Chelsea, and the Toffees will be hoping that the 20-year-old can replicate that form at the head of their attack.

For Barry, meanwhile, the move marks a chance to gain regular first-team football, having fallen down the pecking order at Manchester City following his switch from Aston Villa in 2009.

The England midfielder made 41 appearances for the 2012 champions in all competitions last season, but the addition of Brazil international Fernandinho has seen him fail to feature in the Premier League so far this season.

He is now relishing the chance to make his mark elsewhere.

"It's been a long day and the deal was done late but it was something that I always hoped would get over the line," he told the club's official website.

"I'm really looking forward to meeting up with the lads and helping Everton to progress.

"I know all about Everton's history and it's a fantastic club. I've enjoyed playing games at Goodison Park, the atmosphere is always fantastic."

Meanwhile, Lukaku took to social media to express his delight, in particular at linking up with Belgium international team-mate Kevin Mirallas.

Posting a picture of the pair together in international action, he wrote on his official Facebook page: "New challenge, happy to join Kevin!"
