Wednesday’s papers are full of the news that Samuel Eto’o has completed his switch to Everton.
The Daily Star contains quotes from the Cameroon striker who says that it was Roberto Martinez’s style of play which convinced him to sign a two-year deal at Goodison Park.
The Guardian reports that the ex-Barcelona and Inter Milan ace could now make his Toffees debut against another of his former clubs, Chelsea, this weekend.
The Liverpool Echo contains a feature piece on Eto’o examining his long list of achievements in a career which has seen him play in Spain, Italy and Russia.
Also in the Echo, Everton chairman Bill Kenwright says the 33-year-old forward will soon realise he is at the ‘perfect place’ to enjoy his second season in English football.
Away from Eto’o, Bryan Oviedo has told the Echo that he hopes to be ready to play in a couple of weeks and that he can’t wait to run out at Goodison again so he can thank the fans for their support.
Elsewhere, Leighton Baines has told the Daily Mirror that he could see out the rest of his career at Everton.
