Gareth Barry has insisted he is enjoying his time at Everton and has settled in well, writes Sky
The 32-year-old made a season-long loan switch from Manchester City on transfer deadline day following the arrival of numerous players at City during the transfer window.
Barry has declared it has been easier to settle into Everton, the third different club of his career, than it was at City. “It’s only the second transfer in my career. Certainly at City it took me a lot longer to feel part of the team and part of the club but here it has felt that bit different,” Barry said.
“Everybody has welcomed me in and the manager has suited my style, so I think that played a big part in me fitting straight in. Obviously positive results help as well. It’s been a mixture of things but I’ve felt part of Everton straight away.”
Barry made over 360 appearances for Aston Villa before making the switch to Manchester City in 2009. The former Villa man has gone straight into Roberto Martinez’s first XI and has impressed so far this campaign.
Barry won the Premier League and FA Cup within two seasons at Manchester City, but the only silverware he claimed at Aston Villa was Player of the Season in the 2006-07 season.
