Darron Gibson says he wants to bring goals to Goodison Park.

The Republic of Ireland international joined Everton from Manchester United on Friday, penning a four-and-a-half year deal.

Gibson, who has already compiled a portfolio of stunning strikes in his short career, admitted he was delighted to sign on with the Blues and said he hopes to add firepower to David Moyes' midfield.

"It's a great club with great fans and hopefully I can improve Everton," he said. "I think I’m a goalscoring midfielder and hopefully I can get a few goals.

"I’ve scored a few long-range shots - I don’t think I’ve scored one inside the box to be honest!

"If I score goals it’s a bonus for me. I’m just looking to do as well as I can for the team."

Gibson first broke through the Old Trafford ranks in 2005 but made just 60 appearances for Sir Alex Ferguson's men, many from the substitutes' bench.

The 24-year-old acknowledged he now has a fresh chance to fully establish himself as a Premier League player and said he aims to grab the opportunity with both hands.

"I was very frustrated [at Manchester United]," he said. "It was hard for me at times. I think when I did get a chance I did well and obviously I was getting left out afterwards and I was playing one or two games here and there. It was very frustrating. I think it was the right time for me to move on and I’m looking forward to my time here.

"I’m really looking forward to kicking on now. When everyone’s fit it’s a great squad and hopefully me coming in can improve the team a bit and we’ll start to kick on from here."
