JAN MUCHA has finally completed his move to Everton from Legia Warsaw

The Slovakia international goalkeeper was secured on a pre-contract in January and officially became an Everton player yesterday when his contract at Legia expired.

The 27-year-old helped Slovakia reach the last 16 of the World Cup in his country’s first ever appearance at the tournament. After finishing second in Group F behind Paraguay, Slovakia were knocked out by Holland, 2-1.

Mucha played in each of Slovakia’s four games in South Africa and will now take an extended break before linking up with his new teammates after Everton’s pre-season tour of Australia.

The former Inter Bratislava and MSK Zilina stopper joins new signings Jermaine Beckford, Joao Silva and Magaye Gueye at Goodison Park.

Meanwhile Tim Cahill is waiting for his team-mates in Australia.

The Everton squad will arrive Down Under later today and Cahill is excited by the prospect of playing for his club on home soil.

“I think it is fantastic that Everton are going to Australia,” he said.

“It is fantastic for Australian football as well as Everton.

“Over in Australia there’s a massive following because there’s a lot of Everton supporters out there. This is also a great chance to visit the country and a great opportunity for Everton.

“I think the Australian fans will be excited about Everton’s visit.”

Cahill will miss Everton’s first game against Sydney FC but is expected to figure against Melbourne Heart and Brisbane Roar.
