Marouane Fellaini has revealed he jumped at the chance to work with David Moyes again after completing a £27.5m move to Manchester United on Monday.

The Belgium secured a much-anticipated switch to the reigning Premier League champions from Everton late on deadline day, linking up with his former Toffees boss Moyes.

The Scot brought the 25-year-old to the English top-flight in an Everton club-record £17m deal from Standard Liege in 2008 and Fellaini went on to score 25 goals in 141 Premier League appearances.

“I am thrilled to sign for Manchester United. I have known the manager for many years now and I have a lot of respect for his way of working,” Fellaini told United’s website.

“When I was given the opportunity to work with him again, I jumped at the chance.

“I had a fantastic time at Everton and I’d like to thank all the fans and staff there for everything they have done for me.

“But being a Manchester United player is something that every player dreams of and I believe that I can make a real contribution to the team’s efforts to win trophies in the future.”
