Everton have completed the £28m signing of Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea.

The 21-year-old Belgium international has signed a five-year deal with the Toffees after scoring 15 Premier League goals during a season-long loan at Goodison Park last term.

And Lukaku, who moved to Chelsea from Anderlecht in 2011, believes Everton is the perfect club for the towering striker to develop as a player.

“I’m 21, I need to be playing in a good team. I needed to be in a place that felt right,” Lukaku said.

“I had a feeling that this was the best place for me to grow, so I’m happy to be here again.”

Lukaku added: “I am really excited about rejoining Everton. I had a fantastic experience last season and a great relationship with the manager, the chairman, the staff, the players and the fans.

“I can’t wait to get started again and I’m looking forward to a successful season.”

Lukaku made just 10 Premier League appearances for Chelsea.
