When a 5ft 7in Spaniard by the name of Mikel Arteta joined Everton on loan from Real Sociedad back in January 2005, few would have predicted the impact the new arrival would go on to have on the blue half of Merseyside.
A permanent move followed that summer and the former Barcelona trainee went on to spend six full seasons at Goodison Park, racking up 209 first-team appearances in the process.
“The best little Spaniard we know” gave an indication of what was to come when he curled in a stunning free-kick to open his Blues account in April 2005 - the first of 34 goals for the Club that would also include a memorable Merseyside derby strike at Goodison and a thumping UEFA Cup effort under the lights against Fiorentina.
