Everton complete Eto’o deal

Everton have completed the signing of former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o on a two-year contract, beating Milan and Roma to his signature, the Liverpool Echo has reported.

The Cameroon international, who has won the Champions League twice with Barcelona and again with Inter, left Chelsea at the end of last season after just 10 months at the club. Signed in August 2013 to provide an extra striking option, he went on to score 12 goals in 33 appearances.


Over the summer, local rivals Liverpool have been linked with Eto’o, but their interest has now cooled, allowing Everton to step in and negotiate successfully on a deal which will see the 33-year-old take a pay cut.


The completion of the deal was announced on Tuesday evening, and Eto’o has revealed that Everton’s style of play was one of the main reasons that persuaded him to join. He said: “I am very happy to be here, I am looking forward greatly to putting on the Blue shirt of Everton.


“I have been very impressed by the style of play Everton adopt. I could see straight away that at this club I will have the opportunity to play football. I had the chance to speak with the manager over the last few days and we agreed that this was what we would do.


“I was impressed with his enthusiasm but also by the knowledge of football that Roberto Martinez carries, his vision of football and how he reads football. I still think I can learn a great deal from him here.”
